Generate a calibration function

Description

This function generates a calibration function which can be used to calculate the retention index of a compound, given its retention time together with the retention indexes of RI standards and their retention times.

Usage

1

Arguments

RItable

a data frame of retention times and indexes of RI standardsPeaks, e.g. generated by calling getRIStandard.

Details

The input of this function is an RItable. RItable is the table of RTs and correponding RIs of RI standards measured using an RI run. The user can get the RItable using the getRIStandard function. The output of this function is a function which can be used for retention index calculation providing a retention time.

Value

A calibration function which accepts a retention time and outputs corresponding retention index.
