These are preliminary reports that have not been peer-reviewed. They should not be regarded as conclusive, guide clinical practice/health-related behavior, or be reported in news media as established information. For more information, please see our FAQs.
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.

We developed two in silico quantification methods for chemicals analyzed with capillary electrophoresis electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (CE-ESI-MS) using machine learning - a random forest (RF) and an artificial neural network (ANN). The algorithms can be used to predict chemical concentrations based on the chemicals’ relative response factors (RRFs) and their physicochemical properties. The RF and ANN predicted the measured concentrations with a mean absolute error of 0.2 log units and a coefficient of determination (R2) of about 0.85 for the testing set.
