Multiple emitting components in a fluorophoric system often produce complicated emission spectra. Extracting the individual spectral information from the composite spectra is important in order to comprehend the photophysical processes occurring in the multifluorophoric systems. Although the combination of Principal Component Analysis and Multivariate Curve Resolution-Alternate Least Square (PCA/MCR-ALS) technique is a well-known approach for curve deconvolution, its applicability in the spectral deconvolution of vibronically and electronically mixed up emitting systems as well as systems merged up with multiple electronic bands without a priori knowledge of the individual emitting species, is not properly studied. The present work highlights the strength of PCA/MCR-ALS in retrieving pure spectral information from the set of complex spectra arising out of the regular variation of causative factors that result in the variation of spectral composition. The retrieval of the emission bands utilizing the PCA/MCR-ALS technique has been made without having a priori information of the emitting species present in the multifluorophoric systems and the resolved spectra correspond well with the fluorescence spectra of the individual chemical species. The common curve fitting methods such as Gaussian and Lorentzian techniques have been found to be unsuccessful in providing meaningful photophysical information through the retrieved spectra. A comparative study of the curve fitting techniques MCR-ALS, Gaussian and Lorentzian in a set of complicated emission spectra of (i) pyrene and its excimer, (ii) pyrene and its excimer in presence of benzo[a]pyrene, and (iii) fisetin in bile salt medium is presented herein in details. © 2017, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
