A scheme for denoting the absolute spatial orientation of molecules and molecular fragments is presented; this is based on three angular deviations — one for each spatial dimension — with respect to a reference orientation, which is itself defined with the help of certain features of the Cahn-Ingold-Prelog stereochemical notation. The new scheme helps in reconstructing the three-dimensional characteristics of molecules from purely verbal descriptors, and may thus find application in various information storage and retrieval processes (e.g. encrypting holograms, etc.).
