435 infrared (IR) absorbance spectra of 140 carboxylic acids and 295 noncarboxylic acids which included aldehydes, ketones, esters, amides as well as compounds containing both carbonyls and alcohols were preprocessed using the wavelet packet tree to enhance subtle but important features in the data. Wavelet coefficients that optimized the separation of the spectra by functional group in a plot of...
