Conference paper


The program STRATOS is presented, that generates synthesis plans for aliphatic compounds. They are made without the help of a reaction database, but solely by examination of the relationships between functional groups in the molecules. Implementation of the program in PROLOG and FORTRAN77 is discussed.
