  1. The literature search may be incomplete

    For a publication regarding CASE and molecular generation I would suggest that the literature search may have been incomplete. The software known as Structure Elucidator, while being a commercial product, is likely the most reported and actively developed CASE software in the past decade and has been reported many times. I have produced a list of our publications here: . I believe it is close to complete but I might have missed a couple also as my CV is out of date. I think the book and Progress in NMR review may be of interest. Also, you may wish to review the publications of Sergey Molodtsov.

    I was involved with the development of ACD/Structure Elucidator during my 10 years working at ACD/Labs. I still collaborate with them on publishing but am not involved with the development of the software any longer.
