Abstract

Several, recent, revolutionary advances in combinatorial (or high throughput, HT) polymer science have appeared in the literature, which significantly accelerate the rate of data generation. Although these new HT approaches may in part have been inspired by the similar application of HT concepts in the catalyst field, the development of these methods for polymer research required new techniques be created specifically for the unique issues associated with polymers. These elegant advances are a challenge placed before the polymer community to create new more efficient analytical, synthetic, processing, and characterization methods useful for the study of other polymer problems.The goal our research program is the development of a system of high throughput (HT) methods for rapid, detailed study of polymer nanocomposites. Whenever possible we attempt to keep the cost of the approach in mind and use standard commercially available equipment.
