Abstract:

This handbook is intended for use as a desk-top tool in the specification of molecular and structural characteristics of chemicals which are used as keys screens in queries addressed to a model operational CIDS. It subdivides the several hundred characteristics into conventional categories and identifies all of the individual characteristics within each category. Each category of keys is defined and the individual characteristics keys are CIDS- encoded and, where appropriate, structured. Numerous tables are provided arranged in such a way as to facilitate locating a particular key, and nomenclature indexes are available, where appropriate, for users who wish to employ a name approach. Illustrations of the total assignment of the keys to a variety of chemical compounds are presented. Author
