Calculation of asymmetry factor and tailing factor of chromatographic peaks Juraj_Lenco  2019-08-06
 
Hi, it would be great, and I guess appreciated by many users, if Skyline could determine asymmetry factor and tailing factor of chromatographic peaks. Skyline can determine peak widths at 50% intensity or at baseline so far. Unfortunately, the width at 50% intensity is not sufficient for assessing chromatographic peaks quality. The peak width at baseline is almost never used in LC-based analytical chemistry since it is challenging to determine real peaks boundaries . The peak width at baseline should be thus replaced by asymmetry factor and tailing factor that are very popular methods of measuring peak shape in chromatography.
