I am at the ACS meeting, attending a session on chemistry and the Internet. This post was inspired by Chemicalize, a service offered by ChemAxon, which scans a post like this one, and identifies molecules named. I had previously used generic post taggers, which frankly did not work well in identifying chemical content. So this is by way of an experiment. I list below some of the substances about which I have blogged, to see how the chemicalizer works.
- Copper phthalocyanine
- Lapis Lazuli (this is a difficult one, since the active ingredient is actually trisulfide radical anion or S3-.; lets see if any of that is picked up!)
- Cyanohydrin (a generic term, but more specifically HCN + Formaldehyde)
- Calixarene (another generic term)
- 1,3-dimethylcyclobutadiene and carbon dioxide
- Z-DNA and Z-d(CGCG)2
- Cyclohexane, cyclohexene, cyclohexadiene and benzene (the third of these is ambiguous as I have written it)
- CH3NO (a formula, with many isomers of course)
- Dicarbon or C2 and a cyonium cation or CN+
That should suffice to see how such a list can be chemicalized.
