An algorithm for translating directly frnm chemical names to molecular formulas is described, ‘fire validity nf the algcmithm was tested both manually and hy computer. Molecular formulas of several hundred randomly selected chemicals were calculated successfully, verifying the linguistic analyses and the logic of the canputer program. The algorithm fnr manual human translation consists of eight simple operations, The procedure enables non-chemists to compute mnleculsr formulas quickly without… Expand
Automated systematic nomenclature generation for organic compounds
TLDR
The capabilities of existing systematic naming software algorithms and tools are reviewed and some of the challenges, limitations, and future challenges for development are reviewed. Expand
Automated Analysis and Validation of Chemical Literature
TLDR
It is shown that machines are capable of reading and extracting analytical data from the current legacy formats with high recall and precision and an initial protocol for the high-throughput geometry optimisation of molecules extracted from the CIFs is presented and the refinement of this protocol is discussed. Expand
Chemical Name to Structure: OPSIN, an Open Source Solution
TLDR
An open source, freely available, algorithm that interprets the majority of organic chemical nomenclature in a fast and precise manner using an approach based on a regular grammar that can serve as the basis for future open source developments of chemical name interpretation. Expand
Extraction of Information from the Text of Chemical Patents. 1. Identification of Specific Chemical Names
TLDR
The elaboration of a methodology for isolating substance names in the text of English-language patents is described here, using the SGML (Standard Generalized Markup Language) of the patent text as an aid to this process. Expand
Identifying, Indexing, and Ranking Chemical Formulae and Chemical Names in Digital Documents
TLDR
This work proposes algorithms for chemical formula and chemical name tagging using Conditional Random Fields (CRFs) and Support Vector Machines (SVMs) that achieve higher accuracy than existing (published) methods. Expand
Information Retrieval and Text Mining Technologies for Chemistry.
TLDR
This Review provides a comprehensive and in-depth description of fundamental concepts, technical implementations, and current technologies for meeting information demands of chemical information contained in scientific literature, patents, technical reports, or the web. Expand
Text Mining for Drugs and Chemical Compounds: Methods, Tools and Applications
TLDR
A good portion of this review is devoted to chemical text mining, and presents the basic concepts and principles underlying the main strategies, and introduces a number of published applications that can be used to build pipelines in topics like drug side effects, toxicity, and protein‐disease‐compound network analysis.

A cluster of algorithms relating the nomenclature of organic compounds to their structure matrices and ciphers
Abstract General methods have been devised for the computer conversion of the names of organic compounds to structural matrices from which the notation and molecular formulas can be automaticallyExpand
Consistency of systematic chemical identifiers within and between small-molecule databases
TLDR
It is shown that considerable inconsistency exists in structural representation and systematic chemical identifiers within and between databases, especially when merging data and if systematic identifiers are used as a key index for structure integration or cross-querying several databases. Expand
Mechanical manipulation of chemical structure: Molform computation and substructure searching of organic structures by the use of cipherdirected, extended and random matrices
Abstract General methods have been devised for generating mechanically (a) from the IUPAC cipher, and (b) from random-numbered structures, three types of matrix from which the molecular formulaExpand
