Derivative spectroscopy

Description

Derivative spectroscopy can be used to eliminate interfering artefacts or species. A first order derivative will remove a constant background absorbance across the spectral range. A second order derivative spectrum will remove a species whose absorbance is linearly dependent upon the wavelength, etc..
