Abstract

Deriving chemical formulas of organic molecules, based on spectral information, with heuristic rules is a commonly recurring task. The computational effort and the potentially extensive list of candidate formulas put a strain on the downstream analysis. In this paper, we introduce a set of redefined heuristics based on the hydrogen and halogen rules that reduce the computational burden and the number of candidate formulas for organic molecules, such as peptides and lipids.
