Consider the following example.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{chemmacros}

\begin{document}

\ch{CaCO3 <=> Ca^{2+}{\aq} + CO3^{2-}{\aq}}

\end{document}

How do I show that the calcium carbonate is in a solid state? I tried both

CaCO3{\s}

and

CaCO3{\solid}

but neither \s nor \solid are defined. (The manual can be found here.)

    It's \sld, see section 19 Phases of the manual – clemens May 12 '13 at 18:37

Section 19 of the manual, Phases, lists all predefined phase macros:

  • \sld (s)
  • \lqd (l)
  • \gas (g)
  • \aq (aq)

There's also the \phase{<phase>} command and it is possible to define additional phase commands which will obey chemmacros' phase options.

\ch{CaCO3\sld}
