Perhaps you are trying to place a box around the last equation. One way to do that is to use Aboxed from the mathtools package: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{mathtools} \usepackage{mhchem} \begin{document} \begin{align*} \ce{K_w} &= \ce{[H3O+][OH^-]} \\ -\log \ce{K_w} &= -\log ( \ce{[H3O+][OH^-]} ) \\ -\log \ce{K_w} &= - ( ...

The problem is that bookmarks can't handle things like math, colors, or font changes. You can use \texorpdfstring; the first argument will be used in the document and the second one will be used in the bookmarks: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{mhchem} \usepackage{hyperref} \begin{document} \section{\texorpdfstring{\ce{IrO2}}{Ir02}} \end{document}

Pershaps, the chemfig package may help you though it relies on tikz? Here is the first reaction: \documentclass{minimal} \usepackage{chemfig} \begin{document} text before \schemestart \setlewis{4pt}{}{red}\Lewis{0:,\chemfig{@{a}\textcolor{red}{A}}}\hskip4pt\chemfig{@{b}\textcolor{black!40!green}{B}}% \arrow \Lewis{0.,A}% \+\Lewis{4.,B}% \...

Yes chemifg is a great tool. But as well as almost every code to picture system the syntax is not trival. Please consider the following example. You can easily see, that chemfig syntax follows a logical and human readable syntax, but will become extremely complex for larger structures. And so far as i can see chemfig is the easiest system for chemical ...

Put \mhchemoptions{textfontcommand=\addfontfeature{Numbers=Lining}} inside your document. But: I have never used that package, so I don't know if there is a better way.

You can simply write it inside the equation and maybe add some horizontal space between with \quad or \qquad: \documentclass{article} \usepackage[version=4]{mhchem} % Package for chemical equation typesetting \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{siunitx} \begin{document} \ce{N2(g) + 3H2(g) -> 2NH3(g)} \qquad \Delta H_{\mathrm{f}}^\circ = \...

Update: with version 4.5 (2014/04/08) chemformula has a basic native support for Kröger-Vink notation. It must be enabled with the option kroeger-vink=true: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{chemformula}[2014/04/08] \begin{document} \setchemformula{kroeger-vink} \ch{Al_{Al}^x} \ch{Ni_{Cu}^x} \ch{V_{Cl}^{*}} \ch{Ca_i^{**}} \ch{e'} \ch{Cl_i'} \ch{...

The short answer is 'no' at the present time. Products such as ISISDraw/Accelrys Draw or ChemDraw produce binary files, which cannot be read directly by TeX. So any conversion would either require a separate tool or reading a text file format, such as ChemDraw's XML format. By far the most popular file format for journal submission is ChemDraw's .cdx format,...

can also be put into a macro if it is used multiple times with different elements. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{pst-node} \usepackage[version=3]{mhchem} \usepackage{chemexec} \begin{document} \huge \ce{\rnode{left1}{2\ox{0}{Na}} + \rnode{left2}{\ox{0}{Cl}_2} -> \rnode{right1}{2\ox{+1}{Na}^+} + \rnode{right2}{2\ox{-1}{Cl}^-}} \...

Techically, ( and ) are not letters, so they won't participate to hyphenation. You can make them acceptable with the following trick, which should have no adverse effect with normal input: \lccode$$=\( \lccode$$=\) \hyphenation{poly(ethylene-glycol)} A different strategy could be to define a macro: \newcommand{\Q}[1]{(\nobreak\hspace{0pt}#1)} \...

I suggest to take a look to the new package chemmacros that was uploaded yesterday on CTAN and should be in TeX Live in the next update. The examples on pages 9 and 10 seem to be what you need. Link for chemmacros: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/chemmacros
