Strengthening the InChI for integration of molecular inorganic chemistry
The IUPAC International Chemical Identifier (InChI) is a non-proprietary identifier for chemical substances. It enables easier linking of different data collections. The InChI Trust makes it possible to continue further development and maintenance of the InChI standard.
Sonja Herres-Pawlis is heavily involved in the development of the new InChI version, particularly in the field of inorganic chemistry (funded by the Volkswagen Foundation). For this reason, she has now been appointed to the Board of Directors of the InChI Trust. For the next steps, an InChI workshop on inorganic stereochemistry will be organised in Aachen on May 10 & 11, 2023.
