Development of SMILES was initiated by the author, David Weininger, at the Environmental Research Laboratory, USEPA, Duluth, MN; the design was completed at Pomona College in Claremont, CA; the implementation was completed at Daylight CIS, in New Orleans, LA and Santa Fe, NM research offices. The author is indebted to Drs. Gilman Veith and Rose Russo (USEPA) and Drs. Albert Leo and Corwin Hansch (Pomona College) for supporting the work, and to Arthur Weininger (Daylight CIS) and Dr. Jeremy Scofield (Cedar River Software, Renton, WA) for assistance in programming the system.
