Abstract: The interval Correlation Optimised shifting algorithm (icoshift) has recently been introduced for the alignment of nuclear magnetic resonance spectra. The method is based on an insertion/deletion model to shift intervals of spectra/chromatograms and relies on an efficient Fast Fourier Transform based computation core that allows the alignment of large data sets in a few seconds on a standard personal computer. The potential of this programme for the alignment of chromatographic data is outlined with focus on the model used for the correction function. The efficacy of the algorithm is demonstrated on a chromatographic data set with 45 chromatograms of 64000 data points. Computation time is significantly reduced compared to the Correlation Optimised Warping (COW) algorithm, which is widely used for the alignment of chromatographic signals. Moreover, icoshift proved to perform better than COW in terms of quality of the alignment (viz. of simplicity and peak factor), but without the need for computationally expensive optimisations of the warping meta-parameters required by COW. Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is used to show how a significant reduction on data complexity was achieved, improving the ability to highlight chemical differences amongst the samples.
