Registration page

The Registration page (also known as the autoregistration page) is the second page of the web client application, from where a compound can be sent for registration.

The Registration page consists of the following sections (see figure Autoreg 1):


Figure Autoreg 1. The Registration page

Submission Details

The Submission Details are the LnbRef, Lot ID, Source, Specified Molweight and Submitter.

Action bar

The action bar is located in the top center part of the Registration page.


  • Register

When a submission is ready to be registrered, by clicking on the [Register] button, the autoregistration process is initialized. Before registering a structure or data (CST), the compound is first validated, checked, fixed and standardized. These procedures are the same as described in the Autoregistration chapter . Finally, the match search is performed.

  • Register with CN

It is possible to register a new lot under a given version (CN) without supplying the structure and/or CST and optionally salts/solvates. In order to do this, only external IDs (LnbRef, lot ID, if needed) and source fields have to be supplied, then click the [Register with CN] button and in the appearing Registering structure window enter the desired compound number (CN). Next to the mandatory fields, additional data (e.g. Purity, QC, Project etc.) can also be supplied, which will be saved as lot level additional data. The Project name, supplied for the lot, will be inherited by the version and the parent too. Stereochemistry and Geometric isomerism data are not stored.

Structure area

In order to draw a structure, just simply click on the str ucture area and th e structure editor will load ( figure Autoreg 1 ) . The default structur e editor is Marvin for JavaScript. For draw in g structures, optionally you can also use Marvin applet or ChemDraw. To see how the structure editor can be chan ged please con sult the user Profile page.

After loading or drawing a structure the user has the possibility to "quit" the editing of a structure: just simply click the [Apply] button located at the upper left side of the editor. By closing the structure editing mode, the structure fused image with charges, isotopes and salts/solvates is visible and other functionalities will be available (see Structure area):

There are 5 modes in the structure area: Edit Mode, Image View, List View, Grid View and Fullscreen.

Edit Mode

In the Edit Mode, beside adding or drawing structures, component CSTs and ranges (Mixtures) / percentages (Formulations) can be added.

It is possible to navigate between components by the aid of navigation arrows: Component 1, Component 2, Component 3, 3 Components ( figure Autoreg 2 ).

When all components are present, the add salt/solvate functionality and the CST box for the multi-component compound will be available too (figure Autoreg 3).

In Edit Mode the [Load from database] option ( figure Autoreg 2 ) is also available. When clicking on it the [Load component by PCN] window will open, where a PCN can be entered. Using this option is possible to load a structure (considering also CSTs, but no additional data) from an already registered parent compound, to be again registered, possibly as a new lot in an existing tree, or, to be further modified before registration.

Image View

In Image View all functionalities of the components and compounds, available in Edit Mode, will disappear. In the structure area the fused image of the compound will be available.

List View

In List View all components are listed without their structure, but component Ids and component CSTs, if available, and the ranges of mixtures (figure Autoreg 4) are present. In List View components can be deleted or loaded from the registry database if PCN is given (figure Autoreg 5).

Grid View

In Grid View component structures with their component Ids and component CSTs, if available, and the ranges are aligned in a resizable panel (figure Autoreg 6).

Additional Data

Additional data can be attached to the compound before registration. Additional data can be: Project, Stereochemistry, Geometric isomerism, Comment.
