	Such a list does not publicly exist, although you could create a fairly
nice list from the following resources:

nciopen (http://www.ccl.net/cca/software/to_do/ncidata/), Klotho
(http://www.biocheminfo.org/klotho/), Ligand
(http://www3.oup.co.uk/nar/database/summary/113) and as Jeff suggested if
you have the following electronically available:
Dictionary of Chemical Compounds, Beilstein, the Merck Index and the
Cambridge Structural Database, CAS.  The first 3 I mentioned are free, the
rest are not as far as I know.  Also, you could try searching, as you have
already done, for names that match known IUPAC nomenclature rules.

-ols and -ones to name a few and identified some of them. But there are
still quite a few, to name Zaprinast and Microcystin, which have to

of chemical names which generally occur for this purpose.

	I would be helpful if someone can come up with a helpful

Thank You
