The InChI SubCommittee has the responsibility for continued authentication of the InChI standard and acts as a scientific advisory board to the InChI Trust. In turn, the InChI Trust develops and supports the nonproprietary InChI standard and promotes its uses to the scientific community. (See the InChI Trust website at www.inchi-trust.org for the latest news and release. For questions, email the Project Director or SubCommittee Chair, Steve Heller).
