This pack­age has been writ­ten to al­le­vi­ate the task of writ­ing pub­li­ca­tions con­tain­ing lots of chem­istry. It pro­vides meth­ods for type­set­ting chem­i­cal names, sum for­mu­lae and iso­topes. It pro­vides the pos­si­bil­ity to break very long names even over sev­eral lines.

This pack­age also pro­vides a way to au­to­mat­i­cally enu­mer­ate your chem­i­cal com­pounds, al­low­ing for one-level sub­group­ing.

What this pack­age does not pro­vide: Meth­ods to draw chem­i­cal com­pounds. Although there ex­ist some pack­ages,which where de­signed for this pur­pose (e.g. xym­tex, PPChTex) they are quite lim­ited once you get to com­plex or­ganic, or metal or­ganic com­pounds. I rec­om­mend us­ing an ex­ter­nal draw­ing pro­gram, pos­si­bly in con­junc­tion with ps­frag, in these cases.

bpchem – Type­set chem­i­cal names, for­mu­lae, etc

The pack­age pro­vides sup­port for type­set­ting sim­ple chem­i­cal for­mu­lae, those long IUPAC com­pound names, and some chem­i­cal id­ioms. It also sup­ports the la­belling of com­pounds and ref­er­ence to la­belled com­pounds.
