Abstract  Recent progresses in the combinatorial materials science were reviewed. Firstly, the basic concept and history of combinatorial materials science were introduced. Then, the parallel synthesis methods and high throughput characterization techniques for combinatorial materials library were described in detail. The content mainly includes drop-on-demand ink-jet delivery technique, parallel solution combustion synthesis, thin film deposition combined with quaternary or in situ physical mask, imaging techniques, scanning X-ray structure/composition analysis, dielectric/ferroelectric characterization, etc. Finally, several successful examples of screening new materials via combinatorial method were demonstrated. Outlook on this new discipline was also discussed according to our consideration.
