    Title:  "High-Throughput Experimentation for Chemists: Rationally
              Designed Large Arrays of Experiments for Solving Complex Chemical Problems"  
     

     Abstract:  Large arrays of rationally designed experiments are a powerful tool for solving complex and challenging chemical problems.  In this lecture, conceptual and practical aspects of high-throughput experimentation will be presented, followed by case studies of high-throughput experimentation-enabled reaction discovery, development, and optimization.  Participants will gain an understanding of the strengths and limitations of running large arrays of experiments, an appreciation for the wealth of tools that can be employed to solve their chemistry problems, and key contacts for additional information.
