CIRpy is a Python interface for the Chemical Identifier Resolver (CIR) by the CADD Group at the NCI/NIH.
CIR is a web service that will resolve any chemical identifier to another chemical representation. For example, you can pass it a chemical name and and request the corresponding SMILES string:
>>> import cirpy >>> cirpy.resolve('Aspirin', 'smiles') 'C1=CC=CC(=C1C(O)=O)OC(C)=O'
CIRpy makes interacting with CIR through Python easy. There's no need to construct url requests and parse XML responses — CIRpy does all this for you.
Install CIRpy using:
pip install cirpy
Alternatively, try one of the other installation options.
