# optical chemical structure recognition from images

I want to recognize name of the chemical structure from the image of chemical structure, like in the given image it is benzene structure I want to recognize that it is benzene from the image(I should be able to recognize all these structures as benzene) What way I could follow to achieve this? (like this given any structure I want to recognize the name of it) .

• your question has no question mark (?). What is it that you want to know? – Bruno Lubascher Dec 10 '19 at 18:33
• I want to recognize these benzene structures as benzene – Lalit Vyas Dec 10 '19 at 18:34
• Ok, and what is your question? – Bruno Lubascher Dec 10 '19 at 18:34
• What way I could follow to achieve this? or is there any similar work I could follow – Lalit Vyas Dec 10 '19 at 18:35
• Do you want to only recognize if it is benzine (i.e. is it benzine yes or no) or do you want to recognize the name of any structure? – Bruno Lubascher Dec 10 '19 at 18:38

# What way I could follow to achieve this?

1. Create a dataset with image-label pairs.
2. Create a classification model.

I don't think you will find any algorithm "out-of-the-box" for you to use. You might have a look at some paper to see the kind of approaches they have.

I would recommend you look at these:

• Thank You!! @Bruno GL, I will go through these papers. – Lalit Vyas Dec 11 '19 at 6:39
