Abstract

A pulsed laser photoacoustic (PLPA) technique is proposed to distinguish original from adulterated tequila. In fact, it brings a reliable cheaper and more sensible method in adulteration detection, in comparison with traditional techniques. The method proposed is comparative and non-destructive, and it is based on a correlation analysis of photoacoustic signals, obtained by exciting tequila samples with short laser pulses (7 ns), in the UV region (355 nm). Eleven samples of tequila were analyzed. From a reference sample, all other samples were classified.
