Yesterday I’ve changed the name of this blog. The reason is that I’d like to change the focus of this blog away from chemistry in LaTeX.
More precisely I want LaTeX in general to be the topic. That doesn’t mean I won’t be writing about chemistry in LaTeX any more – of course I still will. But there are so much more topics worth writing about! Certainly one main focus will be news about the development of my packages (one reason for not focussing on the chemistry part: I have a number of packages not related to chemistry at all!).

As you know I have always had a long list of links on the right-hand or left-hand side of this blog. I have moved these to a dedicated page: the Link Library. I also added the possibility for you to submit new links which you think are missing from the list. Have a look at the new page, find interesting links or submit any LaTeX related link which is missing from the list. Most of all: enjoy!

Lately I am full of ideas – not only concerning
chemmacros and new packages as you might have gathered from recent posts – but also regarding this website. Continue reading “ideas, ideas, ideas”
While working on chemmacros I found I wanted to use some functionality which is currently provided by the package bohr. But since I only wanted part of the functionality I realised that the same was true for bohr: it needed the functionality but wasn’t originally designed to provide it. It made sense to extract said functionality into a package of its own, extended with further functioniality. Long story short: there’s a new package called elements which will be sent to CTAN once bohr is updated to use the new package.
June 24th, 2015: elements has been sent to CTAN, bohr has been updated to v1.0.
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: Continue reading “chemmacros development”
If any of my readers are as active on social media and would like to spread the word about this small niche blog: here you go – I’m on facebook:
Like it if you like it :)
Addendum: There’s also a LaTeX User Group on facebook. So far it is not very active but it’s not dead either. Join us, if you like!
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 case that you need all of its features.

Since a few weeks I’m working on a package using chemfig as a backend that allows a simple yet flexible input syntax for typesetting carbohydrates. My draft at this point allows the following:
which gives: Continue reading “Carbohydrates”
Over the past few months I have been working on version 1.0 of my
chemnum package. The version seems to be ready now. However, before I publish it I would appreciate very much some feedback. Continue reading “chemnum v1.0 release candidate”
