Chemistry Now – Combinatorial Chemistry
This post-16 resource looks at combinatorial chemistry techniques, which are increasingly being used by pharmaceutical companies in their search for new drugs. The techniques several techniques, known collectively as ‘combinatorial chemistry’ enable chemists to prepare libraries of thousands of related compounds quickly. These chemicals can then be screened for potential drug activities.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
