Molecule identifier

In each stage of Dragon, molecules are identified by

an integer number (ID), corresponding to the rank in the import list. The molecule identifier (ID) depends on the order of loading.
the molecule name stored into a specific field of the structure file. When loading a multiple structure file and the chemical names are not specified in it, then the filename with a sequential integer attached at the end will be used as the molecule name.

 

If the user needs to load specific text labels for molecule identification, this can be done by adding external variables to the calculated molecular descriptors.

 

Example of MDL structure file (*.sdf) where the chemical name field is highlighted in boldface. The text DRG1 2-methylbenzo-1,4-quinone will be used by Dragon as the molecule name:

DRG1 2-methylbenzo-1,4-quinone
