Strong Points: Broad coverage of topic
Weak Points: A bit too techie for general interest
When it comes to drug design, the technique of combinatorial chemistry is rapidly taking over the subject. Covering this important area is Combinatorial Chemistry Review, a site providing an overview of combinatorial synthesis with aims of providing insights to the field by describing major techniques and applications of them. Highlights of Combinatorial Chemistry Review (CCR) include a short description of the strategy of the technique, another description of resins used for solid-state synthesis, theoretical considerations for synthesis, an informative glossary, news/events, and a wide collection of useful links. The site could use a bit more of an educational focus for nontechies, but that is a relatively minor concern. CCR is an important site for anyone interested in the subject of combinatorial chemistry.
