Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are among the most popular techniques for nonlinear multivariate calibration in complicated mixtures using spectrophotometric data. In this study, Fe and Ni were simultaneously determined in aqueous medium with xylenol orange (XO) at pH 4.0. In this way, after reducing the number of spectral data using principal component analysis (PCA), an artificial neural network consisting of three layers of nodes was trained by applying a back-propagation learning rule. Sigmoid transfer functions were used in the hidden and output layers to facilitate nonlinear calibration. Adjustable experimental and network parameters were optimized, 30 calibration and 20 prediction samples were prepared over the concentration ranges of 0-400 mug l(-1) Fe and 0-300 mug l(-1) Ni. The resulting R.S.E. of prediction (S.E.P.) of 3.8 and 4.7% for Fe and Ni were obtained, respectively. The method has been applied to the spectrophotometric determination of Fe and Ni in synthetic samples, some Ni alloys, and some industrial waste waters.
