Reaxys – structure-to-name

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.
