Substructure-based Neural Machine Translation for Retrosynthetic Prediction
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
This work presents a new template-free neural machine translation method for retrosynthetic reaction prediction by learning the chemical change at a substructural level. The proposed method effectively solves all the translation issues arising from SMILES-based representation of molecular structures.
