I currently support and organization Zero Discharge Hazardous Chemicals ( We have been working on a data schema to aid in chemical inventory capture and information sharing. If there is interest, we would be interested in collaborating. Joe

There is an international effort looking at this opportunity. For those who happen to be in Boston this week, there will be a workshop tomorrow at 5 PM to discuss this effort. The details are:

International Chemical Identifier (InChI) QR Code Consultation Workshops

The International Chemical Identifier (InChI) is a text string that encodes chemical structure and provides a means to search databases for the structure. IUPAC and the InChI Trust ( ) are examining development of a QR code (2D bar code) version of the InChI. We wish to consult with industry/regulatory/academic sector users to identify and prioritise additional information that could/should be included in the QR code at a series of workshops.

The additional information will enhance the value and commercial utility of the QR InChI. Possibilities to be evaluated and elaborated upon include: health/safety information (UN GHS and/or safety data URL); catalog code; batch number; inventory information; sample composition/purity. This project is complementary to another user-focused project that is developing InChI for states and mixtures.

Please register your interest in attending these workshops at:

I will be attending this workshop and can supply further information I gather there to people interested if you let me know you are.

Let me know if you have any questions about this.
