With the explosion of combinatorial solid-phase methods, access to information has become one of the main barriers facing a synthetic chemist who is contemplating a combinatorial approach to a medicinal chemistry problem. The Combinatorial Index is an answer to that problem. This compendium of methods from the primary literature provides quick and convenient access to reliable synthetic transformations as well as information on linkers and analytical methods. Each synthetic procedure is preceded by a section entitled"Points of Interest,"which highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the various studies. The index also covers the use of solution-based synthesis for the generation of molecular diversity.

@qu:"The Combinatorial Index provides a comprehensive collection of experimental protocols that will be of considerable practical utility to researcher working in the field of combinatorial chemistry. The organization of The Combinatorial Index provides rapid and straightforward access to classes of chemical transformation, linkers, and compound structures." @source:--Jonathan Ellman, University of California at Berkeley @qu:"The Combinatorial Index is an indispensable reference for the solid-phase organic chemist. Both classic and modern techniques are presented in an easy-to-find format that is useful as a reference in the lab as well as a source of new ideas." @source:--Ronald N.
