Top: Chemical reaction network for the Formose reaction; hyperedges are labeled with ( i , p
) where i is the i -th reaction ρ
, where ρ
denotes the influx reaction of glycolaldehyde. p
,0 ≤ j ≤ 3 refers to a specific rule from the Formose reaction (see Figure 1). Bottom: Resulting composed rule after the composition of the first i rules along the Formose cycle, context shown in black.
