OLI Name (TAG) - What is it?

OLI Name (TAG): This is the traditional name for the species stored internally in the OLI software. For example: BENZENE, CYCLOHEXAN, NACL (Note: These names are usually for OLI internal use).


Let’s say for example you want to type the following reaction in the OLI reaction kinetics tool:


2NH3(AQ)+CO2(AQ)=CH4N2O(AQ)+H2O


Note: You must use the OLI Tag Name for this step, and additionally specify the phase of the reactants and products.


As a general rule:

  • Water is a special case; it is written only as H2O
  • For an aqueous phase: AQ
  • For a vapor/gas phase: VAP
  • For a solid phase: PPT
  • For a hydrated solid: SOLIDNAME.nH2O, where n is the hydration number
  • For an ion: ION


You can find the OLI TAG Name of your specific species using the Component Search Tool.


In OLI terminology the above reaction will look like:


2NH3AQ+CO2AQ=UREAAQ+H2O
