achemso - Sup­port for sub­mis­sions to Amer­i­can Chem­i­cal So­ci­ety jour­nals

The achemso bun­dle pro­vides a class file and BibTeX style file in ac­cor­dance with the re­quire­ments of the Amer­i­can Chem­i­cal So­ci­ety (ACS). The files can be used for any doc­u­ments, but have been care­fully de­signed and tested to be suit­able for sub­mis­sion to ACS jour­nals.

The bun­dle also in­cludes the natmove pack­age. This pack­age is loaded by achemso, and pro­vides au­to­matic mov­ing of su­per­script ci­ta­tions af­ter punc­tu­a­tion.


The pack­age is sup­plied in .dtx for­mat and as a pre-ex­tracted .zip file, achemso.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 texachemso.dtx will extract the package whereas la­tex achemso.dtx will extract it and also typeset the documentation. 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:

  • array
  • booktabs
  • hypdoc
  • listings
  • lmodern
  • mathpazo
  • microtype

Down­load the con­tents of this pack­age in one zip archive (879.8k).

achemso – Sup­port for Amer­i­can Chem­i­cal So­ci­ety jour­nal sub­mis­sions

The bun­dle pro­vides the of­fi­cial macros (achemso.cls) and BibTeX styles (achemso.bst and biochem.bst) for sub­mis­sion to the jour­nals of the Amer­i­can Chem­i­cal So­ci­ety.

The nat­move pack­age, which moves ci­ta­tions rel­a­tive to punc­tu­a­tion, is dis­tributed as part of the bun­dle.
