Here’s a quick tip on using the chemical database, Reaxys, for naming chemical structures.
- Open the default structure drawing editor and draw your structure (or open from a saved file)
- Go to the “Tools” menu and choose “Naming.” You have your choice of generating an IUPAC name or a traditional name.
- You can also add the IUPAC name to the editing window under your molecule by choosing “IUPAC Name” from the “Insert” menu.
