The CIP system for identification and specification of stereogenic units has been implemented in the LHASA program. This new implementation of the CIP system, according to its 1982 revision, is described. The main improvements introduced are an extension of the capabilities for handling the representations of stereobonds, for the identification of stereogenic centers (chiral and pseudoasymmetric), prochiral centers, and double bonds, and mainly in the implementation of the CIP sequence rules for comparison of the ligands.
