With the development of combinatorial material research (CMR) methods and high throughput experimentation (HTE) workflows for polymer research applications, the increasing demand for automated, high throughput characterization methods is evident. Solution-based characterization methods like NMR, GPC, DSC, viscosimetry and UV-Vis as well as fluorescence plate readers are already available. Here we report on the incorporation of automated scanning probe microscopy in the HTE-workflow by demonstrating the evaluation of surface properties and topographies for thin polymer film libraries.
