We have briefly described an approach to the problem that can be applied when part or all of one multiplet can be clearly seen for each component [1,2]. Building on a quick and powerful Global Spectrum peak Deconvolution (GSD), the method has at its heart the capability for users to define their “solutions” with total flexibility. This approach can be easily applied to relatively simple cases such as edible oils, Aloe vera, and beer analysis. Red wine analysis is much more complex, but the technique has a validated application here as well, identifying >50 components. 
We will explain this new approach and show its utility with mixtures analysis and application to real analysis problems of varying complexity.
In museum and archives’ collection environments, fungi are a critical artifact biodeterioration factor, whereas most infections are airborne. Typical fungal infections in museums, colonizing paper made documents, are caused by species of slow-growing Ascomycetes as well as mitosporic xerophilic fungi of the genera Aspergillus, Penicillium and Cladosporium.READ MORE
