carbohydrates – Carbohydrate molecules with chemfig
This package offers macros that make the preparation of exercise sheets for teaching carbohydrate chemistry a lot less tedious. It uses chemfig for drawing the formulas. Different representation models (Fischer, Haworth, chair…) are supported as well as alpha, beta, and chain isomers.
