Polymer Libraries: Preparation and Applications

Chapter
Part of the Advances in Polymer Science book series (POLYMER, volume 225)

Abstract

Polymer libraries offer straightforward opportunities for the investigation of structure–property relationships and for a more thorough understanding of certain research problems. Furthermore, if combined with high-throughput methods for their preparation as well as screening, they offer the additional advantage of time savings and/or the reduction of experimental efforts. Thus, the herein discussed methods of polymer library preparation and selected literature examples of polymer libraries describe efficient and state-of-the-art methods to tackle difficult research challenges in polymer and materials science.
