Cell-DEVS is an extension to the DEVS formalism that allows the definition of cellular models. Complex physical systems can be defined using simple rules, reducing the development. We present the definition of a model of flow injection using Cell-DEVS. The simulation validation results showed a margin of error within the expected values for the experiment,(More)
A rapid and non-destructive method has been developed for the characterization of chocolate samples based on diffuse reflectance near-infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy (DRIFTS) and artificial neural networks (ANNs). This methodology provides a potentially useful alternative to time-consuming chemical methods of analysis. To assess its utility, 36(More)
An alternative spectroscopic approach for monitoring the temperature of aqueous solutions is presented. The method is based upon the temperature-induced spectral changes undergone by the second overtone (around 960 nm) of the near-infrared (NIR) water absorption band. Single and multilinear regression analysis are tested in order to evaluate the predictive(More)
A spectroscopic device for monitoring the temperature of aqueous solutions is presented. It uses a 950 nm light emission diode as light source and two photodiodes as detectors. Temperature is monitored following the thermally induced absorbance changes of the water-OH second overtone (approximately 960 nm). A linear response between the light absorbed by an(More)
The combination of infrared (MIR) and near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy has been employed for the determination of important quality parameters of beers, such as original and real extract and alcohol content. A population of 43 samples obtained from the Spanish market and including different types of beer, was evaluated. For each technique, spectra were(More)
Near infrared spectroscopy (NIR) has been used to determine important indicators of the quality of beers, for example original and real extract and alcohol content, using a partial least squares (PLS) calibration approach. A population of 43 samples, obtained commercially in Spain and including different types of beer, was used. Cluster hierarchical(More)
A simple and sensitive HPLC post-derivatization method with colorimetric detection has been developed for the determination of N-nitroso glyphosate in samples of technical glyphosate. Separation of the analyte was accomplished using an anionic exchange resin (2.50mmx4.00mm i.d., 15mum particle size, functional group: quaternary ammonium salt) with(More)
A critical evaluation of the application of attenuated total reflectance-Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) and partial least squares (PLS) to the determination of several nutritional parameters, such as the energetic value and the carbohydrate, protein and calcium contents, in commercially available yogurt samples was carried out. To this(More)
The estimation of important quality parameters of beers, such as original and real extracts and alcohol content, has been evaluated by attenuated total reflectance-Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) using a partial least square (PLS) calibration approach. Two sample populations, one consisting of 24 samples and other of 21 samples, obtained(More)
Univariate (zero-order), multivariate (first-order) and multiway (second-order) calibrations were assayed for the determination of vinegar acidity using a mechanized procedure based upon vibrational spectroscopy and the emerging multicommutation methodology. The second-order methodology relies on the use of a flow system based on multicommutation and binary(More)
