I need to draw the chemical structure of Bisphenol A as shown on this page:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bisphenol_A.svg

I've also found this presentation how to do it:

Kindly help me with some guidance.

Ah, but wouldn't you rather learn how to do it yourself? Give a man a fish, and all that? –  Jake Nov 21 '13 at 19:55

Reading the »chemfig« manual and taking a look at the mentioned presentation will certainly not be a waste of time. –  Thorsten Donig Nov 21 '13 at 20:09

No Downvote Comment (Be Polite): when will you growup to do yourself in 30 or less seconds unless you take it as a challenge and practice. Only polite statement was "Thank you very much" in Q –  texenthusiast Nov 21 '13 at 21:11

Here are the fish you wanted, that I caught with texdoc chemfig.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{chemfig}
\begin{document}
\setatomsep{2em}
\setdoublesep{.3em}
\renewcommand*\printatom[1]{\ensuremath{\mathsf{#1}}}
\chemfig[line width=1pt]
{
HO-*6(-=-(-(-[::90]CH_3)(-[::-90]CH_3)-*6(-=-(-OH)=-=))=-=)
}
\end{document}

Now your turn to fetch the cane.

You're really supporting questions stating »my [...] question, which is a result of lazyness: [...] Since somebody of you will certainly be able to do this in 30 seconds, I thought I would ask you rather than wasting another hour on it.«? –  cgnieder Nov 21 '13 at 20:28

@cgnieder I don't see a problem with Fran's philosophical approach. If you think the OP showed no effort, but that Fran's answer does show quality, then upvote Fran and not the OP. –  Steven B. Segletes Nov 21 '13 at 20:37

@PrzemysławScherwentke then they can ask a question about how to open a ring with an MWE of what they've tried and where they've failed... –  cgnieder Nov 21 '13 at 20:37

@StevenB.Segletes what philosophical approach? The OP said “please do this for me because I'm lazy” and Fran did... –  cgnieder Nov 21 '13 at 20:40

@cgneider, I understand your position. I also was reluctant to answer because of how the question was posed, but called for a fairly simple example, not something like the ivermectin. Sometimes a small example is rather more useful than a great handbook at the start, even just to lose the fear of the bull. Moreover, the important thing is that the answer may also help to others. –  Fran Nov 21 '13 at 21:31
