Title: An Open Standard for Chemical Structure Representation: The IUPAC Chemical Identifier
Published: September 01, 2003
Abstract: IUPAC has long been involved in the development of systematic and standard procedures for naming chemical substances on the basis of their structure. The resulting rules of nomenclature, while covering almost all compounds, were designed for text-based media. IUPAC is now developing a means of representing chemical substances in a format more suitable for digital processing, involving the computer processing of chemical structural information (connection tables). This is being implemented in the IUPAC Chemical Identifier project, details of which will be discussed in this presentation.
