Joint Compound/Reaction Storage and Retrieval and Possibilities of a Hyperstructure-Based Solution

Reaction retrieval systems are usually built without due connection with systems built earlier for the retrieval of compounds. This paper discusses options for a file organisation for a unified structural database of compounds and their reactions. Such a database has a potential for improved retrieval capabilities and high browsability.
