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: Continue reading “What’s new in chemmacros v5.6?”
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 Continue reading “New chemmacros module “polymers””
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”
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 chemformula package and the chemmacros package have loaded each other which made them one single package, really. This is no longer true. While chemmacros still loads ghsystem and chemformula (and also the new package chemgreek) the same is not true for ghsystem, chemformula or chemgreek. If they’re loaded alone they won’t load any other package of the bundle. Continue reading “chemmacros v4.0”
In LaTeX-related forums every now and then an interesting question related to chemistry typesetting pops up. Here is a list of the ones I found most interesting.
- chemfig | Custom Arrows in Reaction Schemes
- chemfig | Cram Bond Bases
- Draw Bohr atomic model with electron shells in TeX?
- Can you make chemical structure diagrams in LaTeX?
- chemfig and lego-style molecule construction
- problem with chemical structure numbering
- Oxidation/reduction arrows, overhead and below, with oxidation numbers also
- Molecular orbital diagrams in LaTeX?
- Unequal equilibrium arrows with overhead text
- Number mhchem reactions and create a
- Two arrows in a row in chemfig
This list may be extended in the future. Have you seen other nice LaTeX-chemistry questions somewhere? Feel free to leave a comment.
