Name to Structure Developer Guide

    Using the API to convert a name to a structure:

    String input = "2,3-dimethylbenzoic acid";
    Molecule m = MolImporter.importMol(input, "name");

    The exact behavior of Name to Structure can be configured by including name format options after the name parameter and a colon, for instance name:ocr.

    It is possible to register your own plugins to extend Name to Structure, for instance to lookup compound IDs in a database. This is documented in the NameConverters class.

    See the Name to Structure User Guide for more information.
