MOLGEN is a computer program system which is designed for generating molecular graphs fast, redundancy free and exhaustively. In the present paper we describe its basic features, new features of the current release MOLGEN 3.5, and future developments which provide considerable improvements and extensions. 1 Introduction MOLGEN [17] is a generator for molecular graphs (=connectivity isomers or constitutional formulae) allowing to generate all isomers that correspond to a given molecular formula and (optional) further conditions like prescribed and forbidden substructures, ring sizes etc. The input consists of ffl the empirical formula, together with ffl an optional list of macroatoms, which means prescribed substructures that must not overlap, ffl an optional goodlist, that consists of prescribed substructures which may overlap, ffl an optional badlist, containing forbidden substructures, ffl an optional interval for the minimal and maximal size of rings, ffl an optional num...

After a few remarks on the history of molecular modelling we describe certain mathematical aspects of the generation of molecular structural formulae. The focus is on the automatic generation of structural formulae for the purpose of molecular structure elucidation and the examination of molecular libraries. The aim is to give a review and to point to relevant literature. We demonstrate an application in the area of quantitative structureproperty/activity relationships. Then, we give a glance on ongoing research in the generation of 3Dstructures (stereoisomers and conformers), and finally we mention two problems that should be solved in the near future, the possible use of hypergraphs, and the generation of patent libraries.

Two methods to obtain numbers of stereoisomers and of achiral stereoisomers of a given molecular structure are detailed on the example of di and triinositols. The first method is manual exhaustive construction free of redundance of all stereoisomers, which is rendered feasible by symmetry considerations despite the large number of isomeric triinositols (82176). The second method is counting without constructing, made possible by use of a mathematical tool, the CauchyFrobenius lemma, which actually is a formalized manner of considering symmetry. The results are compared to those obtained by computeraided stereoisomer generation using the program MOLGEN 3.5. It is demonstrated that in their results all three methods agree.
Mathematical Simulations in Combinatorial Chemistry

A novel technique for chemical synthesis in drug research is combinatorial chemistry, where usually a set of buildingblock molecules is attached to a core structure in all the combinatorially possible ways. The resulting set of compounds (called a library) can then be systematically screened for a desired biological activity. In this paper we discuss ways and limits of a mathematical simulation of this procedure. At first, two methods for selecting the buildingblocks from a given structure pool are presented with the objective to obtain only dissilimar library entries. Next an algorithm is described for the exhaustive and redundancyfree generation of a combinatorial library, illustrated by a singlestep and a multicomponent reaction. Finally equations for the enumeration of the library sizes are derived and the limits of the virtual combinatorial chemistry, i.e. purely in computer and without experiment, are discussed. 1
