Part I: fundamentals. Quím. Nova [online]. 2005, vol.28, n.4, pp. 670-677. ISSN 0100-4042. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40422005000400021.
Combinatorial chemistry refers to techniques to rapidly fabricate tens, hundreds or even thousands of different micro samples. The analysis of the large number of samples generated by combinatorial methods requires highly efficient analytical methods. In this case, the challenges are due not only to the large number of samples to be analyzed, but also to the small amount of sample available for analysis. This paper describes the fundamentals of combinatorial chemical methods applied to discover of materials and the development in x-ray diffraction to analyze micro samples.
