  • Biologically active molecules can be identified through the screening of small-molecule libraries. Deficiencies in current compound collections are evidenced by the continuing decline in drug-discovery successes. Typically, such collections are comprised of large numbers of structurally similar compounds. A general consensus has emerged that library size is not everything; library diversity, in terms of molecular structure and thus function, is crucial. Diversity-oriented synthesis (DOS) aims… CONTINUE READING
