CAS Registry Numbers
Can someone explain the structure of a CAS registry number and how it is
generated? According to the CAS web site, 336607-92-2 is the most recent
CAS Registry Number as of this morning. I know there is no chemical meaning
or significance to the numbers, but what is each of the three fields and how
are the numbers assigned?
