Name of your compound from the list provided:

What is the commonly accepted name? (this is the one used in the title of the entry in the Merck Index).

The full chemical name of the compound (“Chemical Abstracts Name”, this is also referred to as the IUPAC name, based on the rules of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry):

What is the CAS number (Chemical Abstract Registry number) of the compound (this number is widely used in industry and research as a unique identifier)?

Chemical formula (note that this is not the full structure) (be sure to use subscripts as required)

Molecular weight (do you need units?):

Briefly describe the role/function/significance of the molecule in food systems (and/or in human health) (using only the information available in the sources listed)

Is this compound an approved food additive in Australia and New Zealand and, if so, what is the additive number (also referred to as an INS or E number)? (see Schedule 8 of the Food Standards Code Standard)

Briefly describe the structural features of the molecule (for example, what is the degree of polymerisation, is it a polymer, what are the functional groups, how large is it, would it be hydrophilic or hydrophobic?).

How soluble is the molecule in water?

Is the molecule soluble in solvents other than water?

Entry number (“monograph number”) of your compound in the Merck Index

Indicate which version of the Merck Index you have used? (for example, the online version or which edition of the hard covered book),

If there was any information you were seeking that was not available in the sources listed, briefly identify those gaps.
