Applying chemometric models to near-infrared spectrum data allows scientists to pre- dict the API content in samples from the manufacturing process and the final product. ear-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) has become more popular in the pharmaceutical industry in recent years as a rapid analytical tool for identifying raw materials and monitoring manufacturing processes. NIR allows opti- mal handling of specific and relevant information and is non-destructive and non-invasive, giving it an advan- tage over conventional pharmacopoeial techniques, such as high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC),
