Near infrared spectrophotometry(NIR) was developed as a non-invasive determination of blood alcohol. The first pure alcohol/water samples were prepared with ethanol concentration from 0.01 to 0.1%(w/w). Analysis of the second-derivative data was accomplished with multilinear regression(MLR). The standard error of calibration(SEC) of ethanol in ethanol/water solutions was approximately 0.0039%. The calibration models were established from the blood alcohol spectra by MLR and PLSR analysis. The best calibration was built with the second-derivative spectra of 2266 and 2326 nm by MLR. Second-derivative spectra in the spectral ranges of 1100~1340, 1500~1796 and 2064~2300 nm with four PLSR factors provided the standard error of prediction(SEP) of 0.030%(w/w). These results indicate that NIR may be applied for a fast non-invasive determination of alcohol in the blood.
