Combinatorial Methods for Nanostructured Polymer Materials

M. J. Fasolka — Combinatorial Mathod Center, NIST (Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA)

2 juillet 2007

Combinatorial and high-throughput (C&HT) experimentation methods have vaulted beyond screening for drug discovery. Now, an array of novel C&HT approaches and technologies are making materials research more productive, more rapid, and more thorough. The NIST Combinatorial Methods Center (NCMC) specializes in the development of C&HT measurement methods for polymer research, with a focus on complex materials products such as coatings, personal care and adhesives. This lecture will give an introduction to basic concepts in the combinatorial approach. In addition, an overview of NCMC research studies will demonstrate the application of these exciting new methods for accelerating the development of soft nanostructured materials. Topics include gradient methods for polymer films and polymer self-assembly, microfluidic technologies for the analysis of nanostructured polymer formulations and high throughput approaches to nanomaterials analysis.
