InChI: connecting and navigating chemistry
Authored by:
Antony J. Williams


The International Chemical Identifier (InChI) has had a dramatic impact on providing a means by which to
deduplicate, validate and link together chemical compounds and related information across databases. Its influence
has been especially valuable as the internet has exploded in terms of the amount of chemistry related information
available online. This thematic issue aggregates a number of contributions demonstrating the value of InChI as an
enabling technology in the world of cheminformatics and its continuing value for linking chemistry data.
