Version 5.6 (2016/05/02) of chemmacros comes with a whole bunch of improvements and changes – no breaking changes, though. Here’s an overview over the changes:
As of version 5.5 the chemmacros package includes a new module named polymers. Currently it mostly defines a few macros for usage in the \iupac command (provided by the mandatory nomenclature module) such as
I published version 5 of chemmacros nearly two months ago and so far the transition seems to have been a lot smoother than I anticipated. There have been a few support emails and posts on TeX/LaTeX stackexchange but nothing too serious.
I have written earlier about a new concept for chemmacros and about the current development of chemmacros. I really want to go along with e idea of modularity. In fact so much that I already have a draft completed (without manual and probably a number of bugs but still…). The …
Regardless how the discussion on modular chemmacros is going to end chemmacros eventually will be upgraded to v5.0. And there are going to be some changes:
OK, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. But now it’s time to discuss a few ideas I have about chemmacros. As you are probably aware if you are a user of the package: it provides lots of different stuff. At least in my experience it is rarely the …
I have written a series of blog posts about chemistry and LaTeX in the German blog TeXwelt.de. The series covers the basics with chemmacros, reactions and formulae with chemformula and mhchem, skeletal formulae with chemfig, safety data, numbering of compounds, and special kinds of diagrams.
My chemmacros bundle has reached version 4.0. The step to a new major version has been made for two reasons: 1) the bundle has been extended with a new package: chemgreek. 2) every sub package can now be loaded and used independently. In all versions 3.* the ghsystem package, the …
A version 4.0 of my package bundle chemmacros is coming nearer. The most notable difference will be that the chemformula package will be usable as a standalone package. This is not what I am going to ask you about. You may know that chemmacros provides some orbital pictures:
Are you teaching chemistry and have ever had the need to show the addition of equations and the cancelling of compounds? Well, that’s not too complicated.
