# Directory `macros/latex/contrib/isotope`

```Despite its powerful typographic capabilities it is surprisingly
difficult to typeset isotopes with LaTeX. Ad hoc methods as often give
poor results with wrong alignment of atomic and nuclear numbers.  The
package isotope provides the \isotope macro for correct typesetting of
isotopes.

## isotope – A package for typesetting isotopes

The package provides a command \isotope for setting the atomic weight and atomic number indications of isotopes. (The naive way of doing the job with mathematics commands produces an unsatisfactory result.)
