What's New in ACD/Name and ACD/Name Batch

Version 2016.1

  • Name generation now available in 16 languages—addition of Bulgarian, Croatian, Greek, Hungarian, Romanian, and Slovenian*
  • ACD/Name Version 2016: Name generation now available in 16 languages
  • Support for the Unicode Standard (text and characters from all major writing systems)
  • Option to analyze stereoconfiguration by taking only the narrow end of the stereo bond into account; allowing for less ambiguity and more complex examples.
  • ACD/Name Version 2016: Option to generate name according to stereo wedge direction
    Stereo Wedge Direction Resulting Name
    Take into account (1S)-1-[(2S)-piperidin-2-yl]ethan-1-ol
    Ignore Refused: Stereo bonds are allowed only between chiral and achiral atoms!
    Narrow end only 1-[(2S)-piperidin-2-yl]ethan-1-ol
  • Continued implementation and support of the updated IUPAC recommendations including:
    • Stereodescriptors now represented by r/s (previously cis/trans, endo/exo, and syn/anti) or P/M for allenes (previously R/S)
    • ACD/Name Version 2016: Stereodescriptors now represented by r/s or P/M
    • Addition of preferred names for some saturated heterocycles, adamantane, and cubane derivatives
    • ACD/Name Version 2016: Addition of preferred names for some saturated heterocycles, adamantane, and cubane derivatives
    • New names for simple ligands in organometallic and coordination structure, e.g., chloro is now chlorido
    • ACD/Name Version 2016: New names for simple ligands in organometallic and coordination structure
      dichloro(dimethyl)cuprate(2-) is now dichlorido(dimethyl)cuprate(2-)

* The development of naming in specific languages is ongoing and in some instances the generated name may deviate from local language recommendations. We recommend consulting nomenclature recommendations for your language to ensure accuracy.

A number of general ease of use improvements have also been made. For specific questions about your installation please contact your local account manager or complete our request form.
