Working Group Chair: Iseult Lynch
This project proposes to encode information (composition, size, shape and surface chemistry) required to unambiguously identify a specific nanomaterial/nanoform as an extension of the IUPAC International Chemical Identifier that we term a NInChI. As nanomaterials are particulates, there is an intimate relationship between the core and surface compositions that challenges traditional naming conventions, thereby limiting information exchange among scientists, computational modelers, regulatory agencies and industry. Leveraging leverage best practices with other InChI working groups e.g. Mixture InChI, Reaction InChI & Polymer InChI is planned.
The Working Group has submitted a proposal to the InChI subcommittee for review.
