Declaration:function CompressChemName (Instring: string): string;

The function CompressChemName compresses the chemical substance name in the parameter Instring and returns the compressed name as function value. Please note that any substance name is converted to lowercase letters prior to compression.

Hint: The compression algorithm is dedicated to chemical names and therefore delivers full compression power only for chemical names. Do not use it as a general purpose compression routine.
