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.
