How to open ROS files

Did your computer fail to open a ROS file? We explain what ROS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is a ROS file?

ROS files are Beilstein ROSDAL Chemistry Data Model files, which you can read more about below.

The ROS file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So a ROS opener may not be able to open all kinds of ROS files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.

Beilstein ROSDAL Chemistry Data Model

Beilstein ROSDAL is a file format invented for representing chemical structures in a well-defined way so that different chemistry modeling applications can work on the data.

The ROSDAL encoding methodology is straightforward for any compound. Thus it is quick to learn, and manual coding and decoding is quite simple. ROSDAL is suitable as an interconversion format with other representations and the ASCII protocol allows a fast and error reduced data transmission
