FindMoleculeSubstructure

FindMoleculeSubstructure[mol,patt]

finds a mapping between the atom indices in mol and an occurrence of patt in mol.

FindMoleculeSubstructure[mol,patt,All]

finds all occurrences of patt in mol and returns all mappings.

FindMoleculeSubstructure[mol,patt,n]

finds at most n mappings.

Details and Options

  • FindMoleculeSubstructure returns a list of associations Association[p1->m1,p2->m2,] where pi and mi are atom indices in patt and mol, respectively.
  • By default, substructure matches are pruned to remove multiple matches to the same set of atoms. Use the option Overlaps->True to disable this behavior.
