Beilstein Registry Number (BRN)

 

Description:

The Beilstein Registry Number (BRN) is assigned when a compound is registered for the first time in the Beilstein Information System. In general the registration procedure is based on the available structural information for a substance which is included in the connection table. Exceptions are biomolecules, mixtures and polymers. Both the BRN and the structure of a substance are unambiguous identifiers of substances. The Beilstein Registry Number is the accession number of the substance record in Cross Fire and in the Beilstein Online database. It is an integer, which does not contain further information.
