The bilinearity assumption for pRAIRS data, that is, negative logarithm to the base 10 of raw reflectance RAIRS data, was found to be sufficiently valid for the test data. A total of 11 real pure component pRAIRS spectra were elucidated via BTEM in tandem with an iterative residual spectral data analysis. Furthermore, 2 abstract pure component right singular vectors were found to account for all the pRAIRS non-linearities, baseline drifts and other spectral noise. In total, 100.2% of the pRAIRS signals were accounted for by these 13 spectral components. The 11 real pure component pRAIRS spectra and their corresponding relative concentration kinetic sequences correlate with 6 well-known adsorbed CO domain structures. Moreover, amongst the BTEM resolved spectra were five new bands that were not previously observed using conventional visual identification methods adopted by surface chemists. These new bands engendered new understanding to the mechanism of CO chemisorption on Ni(1 1 1). The combination of BTEM with residual spectral analysis was thus demonstrated to be efficacious for curve resolution of in situ RAIRS data obtained from surface chemistry studies. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.
