This package has been written to alleviate the task of writing publications containing lots of chemistry. It provides methods for typesetting chemical names, sum formulae and isotopes. It provides the possibility to break very long names even over several lines.

This package also provides a way to automatically enumerate your chemical compounds, allowing for one-level subgrouping.

What this package does not provide: Methods to draw chemical compounds. Although there exist some packages,which where designed for this purpose (e.g. xymtex, PPChTex) they are quite limited once you get to complex organic, or metal organic compounds. I recommend using an external drawing program, possibly in conjunction with psfrag, in these cases.

bpchem – Typeset chemical names, formulae, etc

The package provides support for typesetting simple chemical formulae, those long IUPAC compound names, and some chemical idioms. It also supports the labelling of compounds and reference to labelled compounds.
