Hello,

As part of understanding organic reactions it is helpful to develop a reaction map. An example of this shown in the link below:

http://www.chem.memphis.edu/parrill/EMOC/roadmap/index.html

I starting creating this map using VUE and populating the nodes and relationship info manually.

After doing this a while, I realized that it might be easier to create some sort of structured dataset to do this automagically.

I spent the last few hours creating an XML file that would create this map. After some false starts (including finding that bug where you have to restart VUE when changing the dataset path), I was able to make a simple map. However, it wasn't creating the sort of visual relationships I would have liked. I am not sure if this is because I am starting structuring my XML properly or due to the way VUE handles XML (as opposed to CSV files which appear to work better).

My basic goal is to create a nodes which represent a material. They are connected by relationship arrows which have as info the reagents necessary to create this. Also there would be a attribute for each reaction that would define its type.

I have have a rough XML below but if someone has a better way creating this in CSV or XML that would be greatly appreciated.



Below is what I would like the map to look like:
