Schema:

The identifier property represents any kind of identifier for any kind of Thing, such as ISBNs, GTIN codes, UUIDs etc. Schema.org provides dedicated properties for representing many of these, either as textual strings or as URL (URI) links. See background notes for more details.


ONE
name Text
Schema:

The name of the item.


ONE
url URL
Schema:

URL of the item.


MANY
Marginality: Recommended.
inChI Text
Bioschemas:

Non-proprietary identifier for chemical substances that can be used in printed and electronic data sources thus enabling easier linking of diverse data compilations.

ONE
inChIKey Text
Bioschemas:

InChIKey is a hashed version of the full InChI (using the SHA-256 algorithm)

ONE
iupacName Text
Bioschemas:

Systematic method of naming organic chemical compounds as recommended by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

ONE
molecularFormula Text
Bioschemas:

The empirical formula is the simplest whole number ratio of all the atoms in a molecule.

ONE
molecularWeight Number
Bioschemas:

This is the molecular weight of the entity being described, not of the parent.

ONE
smiles Text
Bioschemas:

A specification in form of a line notation for describing the structure of chemical species using short ASCII strings

MANY
Marginality: Optional.
alternateName Text
Schema:

An alias for the item.


MANY
biochemicalInteraction BioChemEntity
Bioschemas:
