An exploration of high-throughput synthesis, this book presents a compilation of how-to methods, novel materials, and catalyst developments for creating a multitude of new compounds. Introductory sections are coupled with in-depth case studies clarifying theory through practice. The book emphasizes the potential for reproducing experiments in detail.
"From the foreword. . . . . .This book will certainly contribute to…more successful application[s of combinatorial chemistry]. It was an excellent idea to write the book in the present cookbook format. Listing of the chemicals and equipment used in the syntheses and descriptions of the procedures and even the postsynthetic analyses. . .will be very useful for the readers and. . .help them to design their own combinatorial experiments. "
