Once the molecule is in the form, press the 'submit the molecule' button. The registration will take at least 30 seconds to perform, but the network traffic may make the submission appear longer. Molecules added will be available within an hour when the MERLIN database is refreshed.
These instructions have been aimed at creating new moelcules. Most authors will have already done most of the hard work when they created the artwork for their article. These instructions apply but instead of drawing the molecule, load the reaction scheme. Make sure that any abreviations are expanded to their molecular equivalent (i.e. do not use R1 etc but expand it out fully) or otherwise the abreviation is usually converted to a lonely methyl group! We can accept reactions, just make sure that the reaction arrows are not included as they become carbon chains!
The conference molecular database has been setup to allow participants to search for molecules described within articles and posters, and to allow molecular fingerprinting of each article on the basis of molecular similarity.
We are using two THOR databases, one to store the article information such as the title etc. and the other stores the molecular information. A MERLIN server mirrors the molecular database allowing similarity searches to be performed. These databases were created using the Daylight toolkit.
