We are manually curating lists of chemicals put together to stem the proliferation of chemical weapons by international frameworks, international organizations, and national authorities.

In particular, we are annotating said lists with chemical structures (exact structures for individual chemicals and Markush structures for families of chemicals) as well as simplified molecular-input line-entry system (SMILES) notations (Note). We are also annotating the tables with information that highlights the overlaps within the various lists, noting for each entry of each list whether that chemical is covered by one or more additional lists, either as an individual chemical or as a member of a family of chemicals. Importantly, to further highlight overlaps and differences between the lists, we also provide a synoptic table in which all the lists are provided side-by-side on one page.

Note. A document in which the CWC Schedules are annotated with chemical structures and three-dimensional models has been produced by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW): “The Science for Diplomats” Annex on Chemicals – A user friendly and scientifically annotated version of the Chemical Weapons Convention Annex on Chemicals
