Correct Systematic Names in Seconds

ACD/Labs is proud to provide correct naming in 16 languages—English, Bulgarian, Croatian, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovenian, Spanish, and Swedish.*

Naming compounds incorrectly, or working with ambiguous/inconsistent names, is a drain on your time and resources. If you require names in more than one language, this can prove to be an even more challenging task with the diverse grammatical, citation, spelling, and numbering rules in different languages as is clear in the example above.

Whether for patent applications, publications, or submission to the company registry, consistent and correct names add integrity to your science. Not to mention that searching for a compound that has been named ambiguously can turn a quick search into a patience testing exercise.

ACD/Labs' nomenclature software provides an ideal naming solution for nomenclature experts needing to run thousands of compounds, with close examination of results; and those who need simple reliable naming software for individual compounds.

We provide capabilities that include:

  • Name generation according to IUPAC and CAS Index rules with a variety of options
  • Conversion of a name into the corresponding chemical structure
  • Interactive references to IUPAC recommendations
  • IUPAC names in English, German, French, Danish, Finnish, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish.

* 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.
