A review of chemical name generation software approaches for organic compounds

What is it about?

The publication reviews the capabilities of existing systematic naming software algorithms and tools and review some of the challenges, limitations, and future challenges for development.

Why is it important?

This article will help readers understand that software tools allow for the generation of chemical names from structural inputs, and the reversal of these systematic names back to the original chemical structure is very successful at this point. Software for name generation and conversion works very well at this point.
