THE CONCEALED SIDE OF THE HISTORY OF COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY

  • Árpád Furka
  • István Hargittai

Abstract

Combinatorial chemistry today is an accepted new branch of science that comprises methods widely applied in drug research and other research fields within chemistry and even outside of it. Its beginnings were slow and painful in the 1980s. The present account describes a story that has not been heretofore revealed in the history of its discovery. Its format is a conversation in which Árpád Furka, the original discoverer, provides the answers to István Hargittai´s questions.
Keywords: combinatorial chemistry, split-mix method, peptide synthesis, science, history
