# Truncated Chemical Names

[Note: this question has also been posted on KNIME]

Good Morning,

I am currently researching treatment options for the Corona Virus from the CAS COVID-19 Antiviral Candidate Compounds Dataset available on the www.CAS.org. One issue we have run into is that the Chemical Names of the Antiviral Compounds in the Dataset are truncated as depicted in the example below. We will be needing the entire Chemical Names for Downstream Analysis. Is there anyway we can obtain the complete/ untruncated Chemical Names of the Antiviral Compounds?

Example of an Antiviral Agent with a truncated Chemical Name

Acetamide 2-amino-N-(1-tricyclo[3.3.1.137]dec-1-ylethyl)-

Thank you.

• You should be using SMILES or Inkeys not human readable names regardless of whether they are IUPAC valid. – Matteo Ferla Sep 28 '20 at 19:27
