Rapid Screening of Cadmium in Rice and Identification of Geographical Origins by Spectral Method
AbstractThe accuracy, repeatability and detection limits of the energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometer used in this study were tested to verify its suitability for rapid screening of cadmium in samples. Concentrations of cadmium in rice grain samples were tested by the XRF spectrometer. The results showed that the apparatus had good precision around the national limit value (0.2 mg/kg). Raman spectroscopy has been analyzed in the discrimination of rice grain samples from different geographical origins within China. Scanning time has been discussed in order to obtain better Raman features of rice samples. A total of 31 rice samples were analyzed. After spectral data pre-treatment, principal component analysis (PCA), K-means clustering (KMC), hierarchical clustering (HC) and support vector machine (SVM) were performed to discriminate origins of rice samples. The results showed that the geographical origins of rice could be classified using Raman spectroscopy combined with multivariate analysis. View Full-Text
