Apart from a theoretical part focusing on Design of Experiment (DoE) and the basics of the experimental modules presented in the second, practical part, this module has the objective to introduce a modular course that has been designed to allow an affordable implementation of combinatorial and high-throughput experiments in academic teaching laboratories. Currently, the course consists of five experimental modules. These include a Split & Pool experiment for catalytic screening with mixed metal oxides, a combinatorial synthesis of an azo dye library, an in-vestigation of ternary phase and Kahlweit fish diagrams for microemulsions, the DoE and automatization of parallel Sonogashira-Hagihara cross-couplings and a wettability gradient library synthesis of semifluorinated organosilanes.
This module gives a good overview on the basic methodology and introduces its applications.
