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.
