I´m currently writing my bachelor thesis in chemistry and chose to number my compounds with chemstyle. And except of one little issue that works just fine: Is it possible to number intermediate compounds with roman numerals beginning with "I", "II"....? Thank you in advance.




  • Welcome to TeX.SX! It is easier to help you if you add a minimal working example that takes the form \documentclass{...}\usepackage{....}\begin{document}...\end{document}. If possible, it should compile and have the minimum amount of code needed to illustrate your problem. This makes it much easier for people to help you - and much more likely that they will! – Andrew Jun 14 '15 at 16:41
  • numbering works fine but I´d like to have an alternate numbering with roman numerals. the major compounds should be numbered from 1, 2, 3,... but a few exceptions should be numbered from I, II, III, IV... I hope you get what I´m up to – Christian Jun 14 '15 at 17:14
  • It's actually not chemstyle but (in your case) bpchem that does the numbering and defines the corresponding commands – clemens Jun 14 '15 at 18:15
