Structural information for chemical compounds is often described by pictorial images in most scientific documents, which cannot be easily understood and manipulated by computers. This dilemma makes optical chemical structure recognition (OCSR) an essential tool for automatically mining knowledge from an enormous amount of literature. However, existing OCSR methods fall far short of our expectations for realistic requirements due to their poor recovery accuracy. In this paper, we …
