Molconverter is a command line program in Marvin Suite and JChem that converts between various file types.

Syntax


molconvert [options] outformat[:exportoptions] [files...]


The outformat stands for one of the supported formats.







Alternatively, use

molconvert [options] query-encoding [files...]

to query the automatically detected encodings of the specified molecule files.



From files having doc, docx, ppt, pptx, xls, xls, odt, pdf, xml, html or txt format, Molconvert is able to recognize the name of compounds and convert it to any of the above mentioned output formats.

Options

Molconvert options can be specified in the format string. The format descriptor and the options are separated by a colon, the options by commas.

Export options

The argument of MolConverter, MolExporter and the getMol/getM functions (of the applets and beans) is the format string. The format specification ("cml") is followed by ":" and the selected option(s) for CML export.

CodeNameExplanation
a, +a, +a_gen
General aromatization.
a_bas
Basic aromatization.
a_loose 
Loose aromatization.
a_ambig
Ambiguous aromatization.
-a, -a_gen

A      

Atom attributes are stored in arrays. For 2D molecules, only the x, y coordinates are stored. This is a more compact form of storage than the default (using <atom> tags).

P

Create human readable output: put new XML elements in new lines and indent for embedded elements.

CN

The accuracy of the exported coordinates can be given: N is the length of the decimals of the coordinate, 0 < N ≤ 9

D

This option is important if the molecule has parity information and has 0 dimension. By default during the export, a clean method is invoked on the structure and the generated coordinates and wedge information are exported into CML format but NOT the parity information. However, using this option coordinates and wedge information are not generated but parity information is exported.
Attention: When a CML file containing parity information is imported to Marvin older than 5.8, the parity information will be displayed wrong!

I

Ignore unexportable molecule properties. Without this option the exporter will throw an exception when reach an unexportable property.

BOM

Write the UTF-8 byte order mark (BOM), if the given or the system's encoding is UTF-8.

For example: cml:A or cml:C5.

 MDL MOL

Import options

CodenameExplanation
Xsg
Expand all S-groups.
Usg
Ungroup all S-groups.
Fsg
Ungroup S-groups with 3 or more attachment points.
bXXX    
Set the C-C bond length used in the molfile. The molecule file is supposed to store coordinates in 1.54Å/XXX units. Marvin uses Å units internally, thus coordinates are rescaled by factor 1.54/XXX at import if XXX is a nonzero number. If XXX = 0, then coordinates are not rescaled (default setting for 3D molecules if option 'b' is not used). If XXX = A, then coordinates are rescaled to transform the molfile's average C-C bond length to 1.54 Å (default setting for 2D molecules). Examples: "caffeine.mol{b0}" or "caffeine.mol{b1.54}" (bond lengths are in angstroms), "caffeine.mol{b0.825}" (bond lengths are in ISISDraw's units), "caffeine-V3.mol{bA}" (average bond length calculation, same as default).
nomolp
Read molecule type data fields ($DTYPE $MFMT and $RFMT in RDfiles) as strings instead of Molecule objects.
skipMMRV
Neglect ChemAxon/Marvin specific lines in the properties block. Such lines are in the following format: M  MRV ... They should be skipped if the file is converted with non-ChemAxon software, which preserved them but made them invalid, e.g. by changing the total number of atoms and bonds.
skipAtomValue
Disables the import of "Atom values" from the given ctfile.
z
Carbon atoms with "Z" as alias string are converted to R-group attachment points.

V2 or V3    
Force writing V2 or V3 (extended) molfiles. The default format is V2 for simple molecules, V3 if the number of atoms or bonds exceeds 999, in case of reactions with Rgroups or there is enhanced stereo in the molecule.
mol:V3
P
Write floating point numbers with maximum precision. Only meaningful for V3 molfiles.
mol:V3P
bXXX
Set C-C bond length. If XXX is nonzero, then the exported atom coordinates are rescaled by XXX / 1.54. If XXX = 0, then coordinates are not rescaled.
Examples: "mol:b0" or "mol:b1.0" (bond lengths are in angstroms), "mol:b1.0a" (set bond length, aromatize).
Default: 0.825 in V2 format for 2D molecules, 1.54 (Å units) (which means no rescaling) in any other case.

ec
Convert to enhanced stereo representation, considering the chiral flag. Only meaningful with option V3. (Chiral centers are grouped into ABS or an AND stereo group, depending on the chiral flag. When the input molecule contained any enhanced stereo labels, the unlabeled stereo centers always will form a new AND group.)
mol:V3ec
ea
Convert to enhanced stereo representation, assuming absolute stereochemistry. Only meaningful with option V3. (Chiral centers are grouped into the ABS group. In case the input molecule already contains enhanced stereo labels, the behaviour is similar to the one described at option ec above.)
mol:V3ea
cc
Write CHIRAL flag if there are only ABS enhanced stereo labels in the molecule. Only meaningful with option V2.
mol:V2cc
omitClean0D
Omits the clean operation while exporting 0D molecules into ctfile format with V2 compatibility which is the default. This clean was introduced in 5.4 because the ctfile format cannot contain stereo information without coordinates.

mol:omitClean0D
BOM
Write the UTF-8 byte order mark (BOM), if the given or the system's encoding is UTF-8.
mol:BOM
 SMILES, SMARTS

Import options


--smiles stringRead molecule from specified SMILES string
--smarts stringRead molecule from specified SMARTS string
 

f 

{fFIELD1,fFIELD2,...}

  
Import data fields from a multi-column file. The fields should be separated by tab character. The first column contains the SMILES/SMARTS strings, the second may contain the molecule name or the data field called FIELD1, the following columns contain the other fields.

molconvert sdf "foo.smi{fname,fID}" 
reads the smiles string, the name and the ID from the foo.smi file and converts it to SDF format.
d
Import with Daylight compatibility for query H.
In daylight smarts, H is only considered as H atom when the atom expression has the syntax [<mass>H<charge><map>] (mass, charge and map are optional). Otherwise it is considered as query H count.
Examples: [!H!#6] without d option is imported as an atom which is not H and not C. However with d option it is imported as an atom which has not one H attached, and which is not C.
Use "H1" or "#1" or "#1A" instead of "H" to avoid ambiguous meaning of H. "H1" always means query H count. "#1" always means H atom, "#1A" means aliphatic H atom.

c

Ignore fixing of double bond stereo information in small rings, also ignore fixing of aromatic bonds to aliphatic if necessary.
Double bonds in small rings (ring size < 8) is imported automatically with CIS stereo information. If c options is set, the double bond stereo information is not changed to CIS during the import.
By default the bond is aromatic between two aromatic atom. But this is not true e.g. in case of biphenyl where the bond connecting the two aromatic ring is single. If biphenyl is represented with the SMILES string: "c1ccc(cc1)c1ccccc1" then it is necessary to set the bond between the two rings to single. If the molecule is exported by ChemAxon tools, the single bond between two aromatic atom is always explicitly written to avoid any confusion, so fixing aromatic bonds to aliphatic can be avoided.

Z
Import compressed smiles. The compressed format must be specified explicitly, as it is not recognized by the importer automatically.


After importing SMILES, invoking of MoleculeGraph.clearCashedInfo method is recommended in order to remove cashed information which results increased molecule size.

Export options

Export options can be specified in the format string. The format descriptor and the options are separated by a colon.

q
Obsolete option.
Atom equivalences are checked by default using graph invariants at double bonds.

smiles -s "C/C=C(/C)C"

results CC=C(C)C

ri
Smiles export rigorousness (i with the following values):
  • 1. Export the most information from the molecule to SMILES or SMARTS format. Don't check anything.
  • 5. Atoms, bonds and the molecule is checked for SMILES, SMARTS compatibility (default).
  • 7. In addition to the checks in case of value 5, double bonds in alternating single and double bond chain are checked for correct export.

Let molecule.mrv file contain the molecule CC=CC=CC=CC where the two side double bonds are in TRANS configuration but the middle one has no CIS, TRANS information (crossed double bond, or double bond with wiggly bond).

molconvert smiles:r7 m.mrv 

drops the exception: "Nonstereo double bond between active CIS TRANS stereo bonds. Not possible to export it correctly to SMILES"


molconvert smiles m.mrv

results C\C=C\C=C\C=C\C (which is incorrect in the sense that the middle bond became TRANS configuration).

Export f1, f2 ... SDF fields. The fields are separated by tab character.
If '-' is given before the T option like '-Tf1:f2:...' then no header line is written.
'*' character is used to export all fields (and name also) in the molecules.
'name' field is used to export molecule name (if no 'name' field in the molecule exists).

t
Export terminal atom with single_or_aromatic bond.

Examples: instead of [#6]-c1ccccc1 export the molecule to [#6]c1ccccc1

instead of [#6]-[#6] export the molecule to [#6][#6]

n
Export molecule name (the first line of an MDL molfile).
Z
Use compressed format, and compress the SMILES string. Note that the compressed format is not recognized by the import, so it should be specified explicitly.

Export options

CodenameExplanation
 t
converts to traditional name. This option generates a common name if one is known for the structure. Otherwise, it generates a systematic name, but sometimes uses some traditionally accepted rules instead of the strict application of the IUPAC rules, when that generates a simpler name.
 i
converts to IUPAC name (default).
 common
generates the most popular common name of a structure. (It fails if none is known.)
 common,all
generates all common names of a structure.
 source
outputs the name present in the source data (no generation).
 CAS#
Fetches the CAS Registry Number(s) of the structure, using a public internet webservice. In case the structure corresponds to several CAS Registry Numbers, they are all returned, separated by commas.
 singleCAS#
Fetches the CAS Registry Number of the structure, using a public internet webservice. In case the structure corresponds to several CAS Registry Numbers, the lowest one (historically assigned earlier) is returned.
 ascii
Use only ASCII characters to encode the name.
 timeout=<N>
Use at most N seconds for the name to be computed. The default timeout is currently 20 seconds (which should normally be reached exceptionally, for very large structures). A value of 0 means no timeout.

ocr

converts names containig OCR (optical character recognition) error.
Example: convert the defective name "3-rnethyl-l-methoxynaphthalene" to SMILES

molconvert 'smiles:T*' -s '3-rnethyl-l-methoxynaphthalene' -f name:ocr
-systematic

disable conversion of systematic names

-commondisable conversion of common names (such as aspirin)
-elementsdisable conversion of the name of chemical elements, for instance carbon, sodium, .... Even though "carbon" is not converted, "methane" still is, since it is a molecule name for CH4, not an element.
-ionsdisable conversion of atomic ion syntax, for instance "Ca2+".
-groupsdisable conversion of groups and fragments, such as "oxo" or "methyl".
-casdisable the conversion of CAS registry numbers
-casNamesdisable the conversion of CAS names
nameField=FIELDsets the field/property that stores the original name. By default, the molecule title is used.
dict=PATH specify the location of the custom dictionary. Example: name:dict=C:\Users\Me\MyDictionary.smi .
webservice=URL enable the usage of a custom webservice at the given URL

Some of these options are mainly useful when configuring which names Document to Structure recognizes.

To enable an option, a + sign can be used before the option name. For instance, both forms ocr and +ocr are accepted to enable this option.

 CSV

code:csv

Basic information about the format

CSV stands for "coma separated value" and it is very simple molecule format.

id,mol,registeting_user,note
1,C,anonymous@chemicalize.com,this is a rather common element
2,[H],h.canvenids@chemicalize.com,"I bet this is more common, how could you miss it?"
3,[He],pjc_janssen@chemicalize.com,This is boring il ne reagit pas avec quoi que ce soit!


In this file we have 3 molecules, and every of them has the following information:

  • ID
  • registering_user
  • note

The molecule sources are in smiles. After import we get the following structures and properties:

But the user can specify molecule during import which header to use. For example this file:

id,CHEMICAL_DATA,name
1,c1ccccc1CC(N)C,amphetamin
2,c1ccccc1,benzene


Can be imported with the following settings:

csv:strucCHEMICAL_DATA


With this MolImporter recognise that CHEMICAL_DATA filed holds the structure.

Import options

Headers

Automatically recognized molecule headers

Molecule can have any ChemAxon supported formats, but they must be written in one line. The recognized molecule headers are: 

  • mol
  • molecule
  • structure
  • struc
  • smiles
  • cxsmiles
  • smarts
  • cxsmarts
  • inchi

User defined header

User can define which header to use as identifier of the molecule column when importing structure. This can be done with the "struc" parameter. 

 For example this file:

id,CHEMICAL_DATA,name
1,c1ccccc1CC(N)C,amphetamin
2,c1ccccc1,benzene

Can be imported with the following settings:

csv:strucCHEMICAL_DATA

With this MolImporter recognise that CHEMICAL_DATA filed holds the structure.


Headless import

User can import CSV molecules without header, in this case csv importer must be informed that all rows are data (for this use "headless" keyword), and the which colum has the chemical structure. This can be done by defining the zero-based index of the structure column. For example the following file

7,12,4,ccCCcc,rt,gh,jk
23,1,56,COO,rf,gg,kk

Can be imported as:

csv:headless,struc3

This would import the following structure:

  • ccCCcc (as smiles) with the following properties:
    • column_0 = 7
    • column_1 = 12
    • column_2 = 4
    • column_3 = rt
    • column_4 = gh
    • column_5 = jk
  • COO (as smiles) with the following properties:
    • column_0 = 23
    • column_1 = 1
    • column_2 = 56
    • column_3 = rf
    • column_4 = gg
    • column_5 = kk


Override column names

During import user can dynamically ovverride column names. For this he has to set the names in order. (Every definition starts with an "f" and spearated by coma".) For example this file:

result,hour
S.[He],11:15:00
[He],11:10:00

can be imported as:

  • S.[He]
    • TIME = 11:15:00
  • [He]
    • TIME = 11:10:00

With the following params:


csv:fMOL,fTIME


In the above example the renamed headers contained an autoreconizable header name, so we did not have to specifiy molecule colum. But this can be than as it is described in Header section with the "struc" keyword.?

Molecule format

User can specify what is the format of the molecules in the molecule comulmn with the "input" keyword. For example fro names use:

csv:inputname

Export options

Define Molecule column name:

User can set the name of the molecule column with "struc" keyword, like:


csv:strucMY_MOL_COLUMN

Define headless export

User can export molecules without headers with the "headless" keyword, like:


csv:headless



Define export format

User can define which format to use when export molecule with the "format" keyword, like:

csv:formatsmarts

Define exported column header names

It is possible to define the name of the exported clumns every name must start with an "s" like:

csv:sname,smol,suser

Examples

 Example
  1. Printing the SMILES string of a molecule in a molfile

    molconvert smiles caffeine.mol
  2. Dearomatizing an aromatic molecule:

    molconvert smiles:-a -s "c1ccccc1"
  3. Aromatizing a molecule:

    molconvert smiles:a -s "C1=CC=CC=C1"

    (The default general aromatization is used.)

  4. Aromatizing a molecule using the basic algorithm:

    molconvert smiles:a_bas -s "CN1C=NC2=C1C(=O)N(C)C(=O)N2C"
  5. Converting a SMILES file to MDL Molfile

    molconvert mol caffeine.smiles -o caffeine.mol
  6. Making an SDF from molfiles:

    molconvert sdf *.mol -o molecules.sdf


  7. Printing the encodings of SDfiles in the working directory:

    molconvert query-encoding *.sdf
  8. SMILES to Molfile with optimized 2D coordinate calculation, converting double bonds with unspecified cis/trans to "either"

    molconvert -2:2e mol caffeine.smiles -o caffeine.mol
  9. 2D coordinate calculation with optimization and fixed atom coordinates for atoms 1, 5, 6:

    molconvert -2:2:F1,5,6 mol caffeine.mol
  10. Import a file as XYZ, do not try to recognize the file format:

    molconvert smiles "foo.xyz{xyz:}"

    Note: This is just an example. XYZ and other formats known by Marvin are always recognized (send us a bug report otherwise), so the specification of the input format is usually not needed. It is only relevant if a user-defined import module is used.

  11. Import a file as XYZ, with bond-length cut-off = 1.4, and max. number of Carbon connections = 4, export to SMILES:

    molconvert smiles "foo.xyz{f1.4C4}"
  12. Import a file as Gzipped XYZ, with the same import options as in the previous example:

    molconvert smiles "foo.xyz.gz{gzip:xyz:f1.4C4}"
  13. Like the previous example but merge the molecules into one molecule that contains multiple atom sets. MDL molfile is exported.

    molconvert mol "foo.xyz.gz{gzip:xyz:MULTISET,f1.4C4}"
  14. Import an SDF and export a table containing selected molecules with columns: SMILES, ID, and logP:

    molconvert smiles -c "ID<=1000&logP>=-2&logP<=4" -T ID:logP foo.sdf
  15. Fuse R2 definition from file, filter fragments with 1 attachment point:

    molconvert mrv in.mrv -R2:1 rdef.mrv
  16. Fuse fragments from file (note, that the input molecule, which the fragments are fused to, should also be specified):

    molconvert mrv in.mrv -R frags.mrv
  17. Generate all common names for a structure:

    molconvert "name:common,all" -s tylenol
  18. Generate the most popular common name for a structure (It fails if none is known.):

    molconvert name:common -s viagra
  19. Generate SMILES from those molecules that names are mentioned in a file foo.html:

    molconvert smiles foo.html
