An effective combinatorial chemical technique must facilitate all aspects of the experiment, including synthesis, Assay, and association of structure with activity; it must also provide output data in a usable form. The combinatorial technique best applied to a given study depends on many factors, with the availability of a high-throughput assay critical to the choice of library size. It is also important to distinguish between library experiments where the target is a substance, And those where information is sought. A selection scheme with subsequent decoding of active compounds is appropriate when searching for a substance, while a spatially encoded procedure in which all library members are identified can potentially provide more information.
