Sterner-Elser human molecular formula

In hmolscince, Sterner-Elser human molecular formula, in human molecular theory, to the 22-element molecular formula for an average human (see: human molecular formula), calculated in 2000 and published in print in 2002 by American limnologists Robert Sterner and James Elser, the empirical formula version of which is shown below: [1]
