2002 Fall ACS Meet­ing, August 18–22, 2002 Boston, MA

Call For Papers
Com­bi­na­to­r­i­al tech­niques, which rev­o­lu­tion­ized the search for new drug mol­e­cules in the 1990s, have recent­ly showed promise for the rapid devel­op­ment of func­tion­al inor­gan­ic mate­ri­als, such as het­ero­ge­neous cat­a­lysts. This ses­sion will high­light recent devel­op­ments in com­bi­na­to­r­i­al het­ero­ge­neous catal­y­sis. Both fun­da­men­tal and applied stud­ies will be includ­ed. Top­ics to be cov­ered in the ses­sion include emerg­ing method­olo­gies for high-through­put auto­mat­ed cat­a­lyst syn­the­sis and struc­tur­al char­ac­ter­i­za­tion, cat­a­lyst eval­u­a­tion by kinet­ic screen­ing employ­ing mass-selec­tive and spec­tro­scop­ic tech­niques, data-han­dling and opti­miza­tion rou­tines which direct the search towards the glob­al max­i­mum of cat­alyt­ic per­for­mance.
