Additions to Chemical MIME Types

Since 1994, a number of chemical MIME types have been proposed, either via the chemime discussions lists, in published articles, or by bilateral agreement between interested groups. The following is a list of such chemical MIME types which were NOT included in the the IETF Internet draft valid during the period May - October 1995. If you wish to add to this list, we advise that the advise that the guidelines be read and the following procedure be followed;
  1. That a reasonably permanent source of information on the type proposed be indicated. This could be a formally published paper, or a URL pointer.
  2. That a contact person or organisation for the proposal be clearly identified.
  3. That you post your proposal to for discussion.
  4. Several actions would then result;
