The past decade has seen major advances in the application of High Throughput Technologies (HTT). This has been led by the pharmaceuticals sector with the principal aim of accelerating drug discovery and ultimately reducing the costs associated with bringing a new medicine to market. A consequence of this is that technology is now available to improve the throughput of research laboratories and other sectors are now beginning to exploit HTT to improve their R&D productivity. As the use of HTT has developed over the past decade it has become clear that its strength is not simply to enable orders of magnitude more experiments to be carried out - but rather to enable totally new approaches to R&D which were not seriously considered in the early days. The real breakthrough has come from the adoption of new techniques for making use of the data collected by HTT experiments. By using the very large data sets in conjunction with a range of modelling techniques it is possible to substantially improve the fundamental understanding of products and processes. This talk will review the use of HTT to support the discovery of nanomaterials, exemplified largely by examples of current academic research in the UK, the uptake by industry and the potential for the next decade. It will demonstrate the enormous benefit of HTT in helping to understand process and product parameters, and therefore control them in order to achieve the desired physical and chemical properties.
