Comment on "nomenclature, Chemical Abstracts Service Numbers, Isomer Enumeration, Ring Strain, and Stereochemistry: What Does Any of This Have to Do with an International Chemical Disarmament and Nonproliferation Treaty?"

Research output: Journal contributionsComments / Debate / ReportsResearch


A recent article in this Journal (J. Chem. Educ. 2020, 97, 1715-1730) contains erroneous isomer numbers of certain sets of organic compounds. We show that correct numbers are produced by constructive enumeration of isomers using a recent molecular structure generator.
