style for au­to­mated cre­ation of nu­meric chem­i­cal la­bels for sci­en­tific doc­u­ments.

For doc­u­men­ta­tion run

latex chemsec.dtx

To gen­er­ate style file run

latex chemsec.ins

The style file in this di­rec­tory should al­ways be iden­ti­cal to the file gen­er­ated by latex chemsec.ins


Sev­eral ex­am­ples ac­com­pany the CTAN pack­age in the chemsec di­rec­tory. You can com­pile these by pro­cess­ing the files twice us­ing a la­tex pro­gram.

<latex command> example1
<latex command> example1

If you ob­tain the pack­age from the GitHub repos­i­tory you can run the ex­am­ples by chang­ing to the test sub­di­rec­tory and us­ing the sup­plied make­file. For ex­am­ple to pro­cess the example1.tex file use:

make clean example1

or make LATEX=la­tex clean ex­am­ple1

if you want to use a la­tex pro­gram other than pdflatex.


  • The ex­am­ples use the chem­sec.sty file in the base

di­rec­tory, this is not up­dated by the make pro­gram.

  • The make pro­gram copies the ex­am­ple la­tex files and the

style file into the test di­rec­tory. Depen­dency track­ing should keep these up to date.

  • The clean tar­get should re­move ev­ery­thing but the

make­file from the test di­rec­tory.

chem­sec – Au­to­mated cre­ation of nu­meric en­tity la­bels

Pack­ages pro­vides cre­ation of se­quen­tial nu­meric la­bels for en­ti­ties in a doc­u­ment. The mo­ti­vat­ing ex­am­ple is chem­i­cal struc­tures in a sci­en­tific doc­u­ment. The pack­age can au­to­mat­i­cally out­put a full ob­ject name and la­bel on the first oc­curence in the doc­u­ment and just la­bels only on sub­se­quent ref­er­ences.
