COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY; LIBRARIES, e.g. CHEMICAL LIBRARIES, IN SILICO LIBRARIES [2013‑01]
NOTE

  • In this subclass, the first place priority rule is applied, i.e. at each hierarchical level, classification is made in the first appropriate place.
  • When classifying in this subclass, subject matter of interest is also classified in other appropriate places:
    • library members are also classified in the appropriate places elsewhere in the IPC, (e.g. in section C) according to established procedure relating to "Markush"-type formulae (see paragraph 101 of the Guide);
    • methods or apparatus covered by this subclass are also classified for their biological, chemical, physical or other features in the appropriate palces in the IPC, if such features are of interest, e.g.

      A01N Biocides
      A61K Preparations for medical, dental or toilet purposes
      A61P Therapeutic activity of compounds
