Radio-Frequency Encoding

Radio frequency (RF) encoding techniques physically encapsulate an RF encodable microchip with the synthesis resin, such that the RF transponder can be scanned post-synthesis to identify its associated product. RF encoding successfully avoids the need to cosynthesise surrogate analytes, and also permits the larger scale synthesis of compounds since each microcapsule can hold tens milligrams of synthesis beads.
