Tip: Good for organizing documents

The Document Information Section can be very helpful for organizing chemical product design knowledge bases. Using Synapse, one often generates new knowledge bases containing candidate chemicals and mixtures. As the design progresses, multiple knowledge bases are often generated. Using the Document Information Section to record how the containing chemicals and mixtures were generated can be very useful.
