I need help identifying this structure for a puzzle. Original text was blurry, so a white overlay was added for readability, though some fragments might be different. Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

I would expect neither Ne (Na only), nor 8 (3 only) for the marked fragments on the given structure. Both groups are most likely just sodium sulfonate $\ce{-SO3^-Na+}$ fragments. The name generated by MarvinSketch for the given structure is disodium 4‐(3‐carbamoyl‐5‐acetamidobenzamido)benzene‐1,3‐disulfonate:

    $\begingroup$ using this in a substructure search in chemspider gives this neat looking thing : chemspider.com/Chemical-Structure.9564201.html I guess this image could be part of that. $\endgroup$ – gilleain Nov 10 '17 at 13:19
  • $\begingroup$ @gilleain Good find, I guess your comment might as well be an answer:) $\endgroup$ – andselisk Nov 10 '17 at 13:24
