A new biomimetic algorithm, Chemical Ant Colony Algorithm, has been developed, which has the characteristics of intelligent search, global optimization, robustness, distributed computation and easy combination with other heuristic. The proposed method has been successfully applied to the spectroscopy analysis of the Zn2+, Cd2+, Pb(2+)-porphyin tribasic color system with supramolecular properties; the errors are within +/-8.0%.
