Template {{Chembox}} is an infobox for chemicals. It has a large number of options to add relevant data and images. The infobox is organized in sections like "identifiers" and "hazards".

Usage

The Chembox has a modular design. After the general information like the chemical name and images, it can be built from multiple sections, each covering a group of information (like "pharmacology"). Depending on the compound, sections can be added or left out, and within a section parameters can be added or omitted (left blank).

The sections and their parameters are listed below.

Within the general chembox template (with its own parameters like |ImageFile= and |IUPACName=), each section is added with this pattern (as the value of a parameter |Sectionx=.

{{Chembox
| ImageFile = 
| IUPACName = 
<!-- more general Chembox parameters here -->
| Section1 = {{Chembox Identifiers
| CASNo = 
| PubChem = 
<!-- more Identifier parameters here -->
  }}
}}

In this format, spaces and new lines have no meaning and can be used freely to separate sections (though within a data value, a space has a meaning, except generally leading and trailing spaces). Each section has its own number in |Section#=. Then a section is defined with "|Section# = {{Chembox " and ends with "}}". Sections cannot 'nest': one must close one section with }} before adding another |Section#= {{Chembox ....

Keep in mind the advice in the main Infobox documentation to use the {{Unbulleted list}} template to present multiple values for a parameter so as to ensure that the values are each started on a new line and tagged appropriately in the underlying markup. This is particularly important with parameters like |OtherNames=, since many names use commas within them, and using commas as separators leads to ambiguity. For example:

| OtherNames = {{Unbulleted list
  | 2,4,6(1''H'',3''H'',5''H'')-pyrimidinetrione
  | 2,4,6-trioxohexahydropyrimidine
  | pyrimidinetriol
  | malonylurea
  | 6-hydroxyuracil
  | ''N'',''N''-(1,3-dioxo-1,3-propanediyl)urea
  }}
| (next parameter) = <!-- etc. -->

Indexed parameters take indexes 'blank', 1–5 (six options together). They should have straight input, such as a correct CAS Registry Number.

  • Eight base parameters are indexed this way, all identifiers:
CASNo, ChEBI, ChEMBL, ChemSpiderID, DrugBank, InChI, KEGG, PubChem, SMILES, UNII
  • Then |_Other= (like |CASNoOther=) is available for free text input.
same substance, same index

When the chembox has multiple substances, you can use the index. Make sure that |CASNo3= and |SMILES3= are about the same substance, and |CASNo3= and |SMILES2= are not. Treat index "0" the same way:

|CASNo= is |InChI= is |SMILES=
|CASNo1= is |InChI1= is |SMILES1=
|CASNo= is not |InChI1= is not |SMILES4=
Labeling the substances

By using a parameter like |index2_label=, you can prefix every #2-input with that same prefix.

Section subtemplates

The following section subtemplates are available:

And the automated section, that is visible when 'pagename (data page)' exists:

See these subsections for their parameter options.

The order of these sections in the infobox is set by the section number (|Section#=) only. Not by the typed sequence. This documentation keeps this arbitrary order:

| Section1 = {{Chembox Identifiers}}
| Section2 = {{Chembox Properties}}
| Section3 = {{Chembox Structure}}
| Section4 = {{Chembox Thermochemistry}}
| Section5 = {{Chembox Explosive}}
| Section6 = {{Chembox Pharmacology}}
| Section7 = {{Chembox Hazards}}
| Section9 = {{Chembox Related}}

Sections that are not used can be safely removed, renumbering is not necessary.

Adding images

Parameters

Image parameters for the first images:

{{Chembox
<!-- Other chembox parameters can go here -->
<!-- Row 1/7 -->
| ImageFile = 
| ImageName = 
| ImageSize = 
| ImageAlt = 
| ImageCaption = 
| ImageFile_Ref = 
<!-- Row 2/7 -->
| ImageFile1 = 
| ImageName1 = 
| ImageSize1 = 
| ImageAlt1 = 
| ImageCaption1 = 
| ImageFile1_Ref = 
<!-- Row 3/7 -->
| ImageFileL1 = 
| ImageNameL1 = 
| ImageSizeL1 = 
| ImageAltL1 = 
| ImageCaptionL1 = 
| ImageFileL1_Ref = 

| ImageFileR1 = 
| ImageNameR1 = 
| ImageSizeR1 = 
| ImageAltR1 = 
| ImageCaptionR1 = 
| ImageFileR1_Ref = 

| ImageCaptionL1R1 = 
<!-- More chembox parameters can go here, like |Section1=... -->
}}

Examples

Image parameters for an image (example: File1). All are optional.

Chembox
Skeleton formula of a ring of four carbons and one oxygen, with a carbon-oxygen attached to a carbon next to an oxygen
A caption shows here
{{Chembox
| ImageFile1 = Furfural.svg
| ImageAlt1 = Skeleton formula of a ring of four carbons and one oxygen, with a carbon-oxygen attached to a carbon next to an oxygen
| ImageName1 = 
| ImageCaption1 = A caption shows here
| ImageSize1 = 
| ImageFile1_Ref =ref
}}

Adding two images:

Chembox
Skeleton formula of a ring of four carbons and one oxygen, with a carbon-oxygen attached to a carbon next to an oxygen
3D filled-sphere model of the same molecule
{{Chembox
| ImageFile = Furfural.svg
| ImageAlt = Skeleton formula of a ring of four carbons and one oxygen, with a carbon-oxygen attached to a carbon next to an oxygen
| ImageFile1 = Furfural-3D-vdW.png
| ImageAlt1 = 3D filled-sphere model of the same molecule
}}

This gives two images, each image on his own row (note, ImageFile is the first image, ImageFile1 is the second).

Adding two images, side by side (L1 and R1):

Chembox
Skeleton formula of a ring of four carbons and one oxygen, with a carbon-oxygen attached to a carbon next to an oxygen
3D filled-sphere model of the same molecule
{{Chembox
| ImageFileL1 = Furfural.svg
| ImageAltL1 = Skeleton formula of a ring of four carbons and one oxygen, with a carbon-oxygen attached to a carbon next to an oxygen
| ImageFileR1 = Furfural-3D-vdW.png
| ImageAltR1 = 3D filled-sphere model of the same molecule
}}

This gives one row with two images. Note that ImageFile is now not supplied.

Multiple images

Chembox images ordering
row 1 ImageFile
row 2 ImageFile1
row 3 ImageFileL1 ImageFileR1
row 4 ImageFile2
row 5 ImageFileL2 ImageFileR2
row 6 ImageFile3
row 7 ImageFileL3 ImageFileR3

This gives the possibility to play a bit with which image is first (rows with empty parameters are not displayed). Example:

Chembox
Skeleton formula of a ring of four carbons and one oxygen, with a carbon-oxygen attached to a carbon next to an oxygen
3D filled-sphere model of the same molecule
Water droplet erupting from the center of a concentric ring of ripples, evidently in response to a drop landing in the water just before

This gives one row with two images, and one row with one image.

Maintenance

Troubleshooting

  • When supplying a parameter with a value, and nothing or the wrong value shows up, check:
  • Is the parameter placed in the correct section?
  • Are the sections properly defined? Sections start with | Section# = {{Chembox sectionname |" and end with "}}".
  • Is there inconsistency in the Section numbering? Available numbers for sections are 1 – 9.

Template Data

This is the TemplateData documentation for this template used by VisualEditor and other tools.

See the monthly error report for this template.

TemplateData for Chembox

Template {{Chembox}} is an infobox for chemicals. It has a large number of options to add relevant data and images. The Chembox has a modular design. After the general information like the chemical name and images, it can be built from multiple sections, each covering a group of information (like "pharmacology"). Depending on the compound, sections can be added or left out, and within a section parameters can be added or omitted (left blank). Please see this template's page for full documentation.

Template parameters

This template has custom formatting.
