Experimental Design for Combinatorial and High Throughput Materials Development progresses from methods that are now standard, such as gradient arrays, to mathematical developments that are breaking new ground. The former will be particularly useful to researchers entering the field, while the latter should inspire and challenge advanced practitioners. The book’s contents are contributed by leading researchers in their respective fields. Chapters include:
-High Throughput Synthetic Approaches for the Investigation of Inorganic Phase Space
-Combinatorial Mapping of Polymer Blends Phase Behavior
-Artificial Neural Networks in Catalyst Development
-The Monte Carlo Approach to Library Design and Redesign
This book also contains over 200 useful charts and drawings. Industrial chemists, chemical engineers, materials scientists, and physicists working in combinatorial and high throughput chemistry will find James Cawse’s study to be an invaluable resource.
