Has anyone considered using Mathematica to solve chemical reactions synthesis?

I was thinking if the basic Organic Chemistry reactions could be stored in
symbolic form, then you tell some algorithm: I am starting with this reagent
and want to make this product - what are the steps, please!

Mathematica seems the perfect engine for a "Chemica" or "Synthetica"
package, no?
