  • 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… CONTINUE READING
