Viscosity assessment of the biodiesel product using chemometrics. HCA dendrogram of six biodiesels (LIN: linseed, SOY: soy, CAN: canola, OLI: olive, MUS: mustard and CAS: castor) and nine petrodiesel-biodiesel mixture samples (BXX, where XX stands for the amount of castor biodiesel in the mixture) was calculated using the acquired transverse relaxation signals. A linkage distance threshold of 4000 yielded four groups which were assigned to different viscosities.
