A new method for the simultaneous determination of vulcanized rubber additives by Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrophotometry using partial least-squares regression (PLSR) for multivariate calibration was developed. The effect of various wavenumber ranges and the use of the absorbance and first-derivative spectral modes on performance were studied by applying the method to three different sample batches containing several additives in different proportions, all of which were resolved with satisfactory results.
