The unique properties of solid particles make them a promising element of micro- and nanostructure technologies. Solid particles can be used as building blocks for micro and nanostructures, carriers of monomers, or catalysts. The possibility of patterning different kinds of particles on the same substrate opens the pathway for novel combinatorial designs and novel technologies. One of the examples of such technologies is the synthesis of peptide arrays with amino acid particles. This review examines the known methods of combinatorial particle patterning via static electrical and magnetic fields, laser radiation, patterning by synthesis, and particle patterning via chemically modified or microstructured surfaces.
