Name To Structure

This page lets you easily convert compound names, IUPAC names, SMILES codes and CAS numbers into chemical structures. On the back end it employs OpenChemLib to decode SMILES codes, the OPSIN library developed by Daniel Lowe, drug and natural product dictionaries, the CACTUS online service provided by the National Cancer Institute, and openmolecules software. 3D structure images are random low energy conformers rendered on-the-fly using the ray tracing engine SunFlow (see example below).
