The pace at which major technological changes take place is often dictated by the rate at which new materials are discovered, and timely arrival of new materials has always played a key role in bringing advances to our society. There is no wonder then that the so-called combinatorial or the high-throughput strategy has been embraced by practitioners of materials science in virtually every field. Pioneered by the pharmaceutical industry, the combinatorial method is now widely considered a watershed in the accelerated discovery and optimization of new materials. High-throughput experimentation allows simultaneous synthesis and screening of large arrays of different materials.
