The chemical notation language SMILES is designed for the conversion of an arbitrarily chosen description of chemical structure to one unique notation. This is accomplished in a two-stage algorithm, CANGEN. The first stage involves CANonicalization of structure, whereby the molecule is treated as a graph with nodes (atoms) and edges (bonds). Each atom is canonically ordered and labeled. In the second stage, starting with the lowest labeled atom, a molecular graph is GENerated, which is the unique SMILES structure.
