There are some definitions for chemometrics, really there is a debate about "the name" between Chemometrics and Chemometry but this is one other story.

My purpose is not to write a new ones but I want to mention the "others". Here you can see the lists.

- Chemometrics is what chemometricians do

- Chemometricians are people who drink beer and steal ideas from statisticians

These jocular definitions belong to Swedish scientist Swante Wold, who (together with Bruce Kowalski) introduced the term chemometrics in the early 1970s.

Chemometrics is the science of extracting information from chemical systems by data-driven means. It is a highly interfacial discipline, using methods frequently employed in core data-analytic disciplines such as multivariate statistics, applied mathematics, and computer-science, but to investigate and address problems in chemistry, biochemistry and chemical engineering. In this way, it mirrors several other interfacial '-metrics' such as psychometrics and econometrics.

- the chemical discipline that uses mathematical and statistical methods, (a) to design or select optimal measurement procedures and experiments, and (b) to provide maximum chemical information by analyzing chemical data.

from:Chemometrics, by Matthias Otto, WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH, 2007, ISBN: 970-3-527-31418-8

Chemometrics is the application of mathematical or statistical methods to chemical data. The International Chemometrics Society (ICS) offers the following definition: *Chemometrics is the science of relating measurements made on a chemical system or process to the state of the system via application of mathematical or statistical methods*.

Chemometric research spans a wide area of different methods which can be applied in chemistry. There are techniques for collecting good data (optimization of experimental parameters, design of experiments, calibration, signal processing) and for getting information from these data (statistics, pattern recognition, modeling, structure-property-relationship estimations).

Chemometrics tries to build a bridge between the methods and their application in chemistry.

from:Nicolaas Klass M. Faber, 2CY Chemometry Consultancy, at www.chemometry.com, accessed november 2009.

A chemical discipline that uses mathematical and statistical methods to design or select optimal measurement procedures and experiments and to provide maximum chemical information by analyzing chemical data. Chemometrics is actually a collection of procedures, mathematics, and statistics that can help chemists perform well-designed experiments and proceed rapidly from data, to information, to knowledge of chemical systems and processes.
