I recently learned about organic molecules in one of my chemistry classes, and I wondered whether I could build a program which would find the name of a given compound using the IUPAC nomenclature.
What it does
It takes the structural formula for a compound, breaks it down using Object-Oriented Programming, finds the functional group(s) and outputs the full name
How I built it
I built it myself using Python (PyCharm IDE)
Challenges I ran into
Integrating Flask into my code (I ran out of time) and making a distinction between "Br" and "H" as 2 different elements (i.e. instead of the program reading it as "B" and "r")
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Learning about Flask and how useful it is for creating
What I learned
How to use Flask, and how
What's next for Organic Chemical Identification
Integrating it with Flask
