Searchable and browsable collection of nearly 7000 terms, with authoritative definitions, spanning the whole range of chemistry.
An overview of both the need for systematic naming as well as available software modules to perform naming.
Database that gives the full name when given the acronym ( > 12,000 entries, includes the Abbreviations of Chemical Compounds database)
Search the full name for an acronym (Automatic left and right truncation)
Overview of standard abbreviations and acronyms used by CAS in order to be able to use them in search profiles and identify them in text. Listing A is arranged in the alphabetical order of the full terms which are abbreviated, Listing B is arranged in the alphabetical order of abbreviations and acronyms.
Database contains over 180,000 entries.
Chemindex is a searchable database guiding to information resources on over 200,000 chemicals. Each Chemindex record contains e.g. chemical names and synonyms, the CAS registry number, and a list of the CCINFO databases containing information on that substance.
Contains over 140,000 systematic and non-systematic names along with the corresponding molecular structures of the most frequently used chemicals and biologicals classified by more than 200 therapeutic categories.
Structure to name conversion
Generates systematic names according to IUPAC and IUMBM recommendations on Nomenclature of Organic Chemistry for almost any organic structure and selected classes of natural products, biochemical, organometallic and inorganic structures.
Assigns systematic names to organic structures according to IUPAC nomenclature rules (1993 blue book).
Name to structure conversion
From a chemical name (IUPAC or trivial), it creates the corresponding structure in one of the three styles: shorthand, Kekule, or semistructural formula.
Generates a ChemDraw structure by typing in systematic chemical names for most substances.
Generates structures from systematic and trivial chemical names, designates stereo configuration of chiral centers and double bonds, assigns numbers to atoms in the structure and reports warnings about ambiguity of chemical name.
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry is a voluntary non-governmental, non-profit organization that unites chemists from all over the world.
