achemso - Support for submissions to American Chemical Society journals

The achemso bundle provides a class file and 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 (896.6k).
