Default From a picture to an understanding



Hello,

When I see a picture of a molecule on a website or
in a magazine, etc., it often helps to know *which*
molecule is illustrated. Presumably, such labelling
is unnecessary for experienced chemists. But for
the rest of us . . . .

Suppose I see a picture of a molecule with 8 carbons,
4 nitrogens, 2 oxygens, and 7 hydrogens. It isn't enough
to write C8N4O2H7, because there are, I'm guessing,
*many* ways to tie those 21 atoms together.

Suppose further that, yes, I have indeed read the text
of the article and the caption, etc., and that my
question is still not answered.

Is there a website or some other resource which will
guide me to some of the possibilities, if I type in
C8N4O2H7 or something like it?

Thank you very much,

Ted Shoemaker

PS Please respond to the newsgroup, not the email address.

There's always <http://chemfinder.cambridgesoft.com/> and related
