The purpose of this Internet Draft is to propose an update to Internet RFC 1521 to include a new primary content-type to be known as chemical. RFC 1521 describes mechanisms for specifying and describing the format of Internet Message Bodies via content-type/subtype pairs. We believe that chemical defines a fundamental type of content with unique presentational and processing aspects. We outline the typical expected uses of such a content type and propose a number of chemical sub-types. This document updates IETF Internet Draft draft-rzepa-chemical-mime-type-00.txt in which this specific proposal was made, incorporates suggestions received during the initial discussion period and indicates scientific support for and uptake of this proposal[2-7].
