Nowadays, since the explosive liquids can easily be obtained by mixing simple substances, the electromagnetic methods developed for safety purposes have gained acceleration. In this study; liquids which may be explosive with chemical explosion, combustion and combination, as well as, non-explosive liquids which may be found inside baggages in airports are used to measure electromagnetic responses ranging from 1-50 GHz and complex dielectric permeability coefficients are calculated with commercial software. Explosive and non-explosive liquids are classified a with the help of three different algorithms such as PLS, PCA and K-Means.
