added a format constraint, that just checks if only valid characters are used --Akkakk 00:28, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
Hi. It seems (in the WPEN chemboxes) that a few chemical components can have multiples SMILES codes. Do we have a solution in WD to represent all of them (I see only one property "SMILES"). Kelson (talk) 14:28, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
- @Kelson: You can have only one SMILES per chemical compound but depending your chemical, you can have two notations: canonical and isomeric. Canonical is the normal representation without indications about chiral carbons. This representation is not unique. The isomeric representation is unique. So normally you canonical for simple molecules and isomeric for chiral molecules. If you have more than two there is an error or the article is about a mixture or mix different data in the same article.
- I open a discussion in the Chemistry project. See here if you want to add your comment. Snipre (talk) 13:57, 17 June 2015 (UTC)
