The chemstyle bundle - Schemes and style for chemistry

The `chemstyle` bundle provides two packages: `chemstyle` and
`chemscheme`.  Both are intended to help chemists create floating
graphics and match published styles.

The `chemscheme` package consists of two parts, both related to
chemical schemes.  The package adds a `scheme` float type to the
LaTeX default types figure and table. The `scheme` float type
acts in the same way as those defined by the LaTeX kernel, but
is intended for chemical schemes.  The package also provides a
method for adding automatic chemical numbering to schemes.

The `chemstyle` package provides a "one-stop shop" for setting up
formatting of LaTeX documents following the editorial policies
of various chemical journals.  It provides a number of handy
chemistry-related commands, and loads several support packages
to aid the chemist.


The package is supplied in `.dtx` format and as a pre-extracted
`.zip` file, `chemstyle.tds.zip`. The later is most convenient
for most users: simply unzip this in your local `texmf`
directory. If you want to unpack the `.dtx` yourself, running
`tex chemstyle.dtx` will extract the package whereas `latex
chemstyle.dtx` will extract it and also typeset the

Typesetting the documentation requires a number of packages in
addition to those needed to use the package. This is mainly
because of the number of demonstration items included in the
text. To compile the documentation without error, you will
need the packages:
 - `booktabs`
 - `csquotes`
 - `helvet`
 - `mathpazo`
 - `mhchem`
 - `microtype`
 - `listings`
 - `lmodern`

chem­style – Writ­ing chem­istry with style

Chem­style has been de­vel­oped as a suc­ces­sor to the pack­age pro­vided by the rsc bun­dle. The pack­age pro­vides an ex­ten­si­ble sys­tem for for­mat­ting chem­istry doc­u­ments ac­cord­ing to the con­ven­tions of a num­ber of lead­ing jour­nals. It also pro­vides some handy chem­istry-re­lated macros.

Chem­style is much en­hanced com­pared to its pre­de­ces­sor, and users of rsc are strongly en­cour­aged to mi­grate (all of the ad­di­tional macros in the rsc pack­age are present in chem­style).

The pack­age chem­scheme is dis­tributed with chem­style; chem­style it­self in­cor­po­rates ideas that come from the trivfloat pack­age; the doc­u­men­ta­tion uses the auto-pst-pdf pack­age.
