I am preparing a report using the achemso document class.

I do not want to write an article, hence I do not need to have the * and the footnote "whom correspondence should be addressed".

I tried \author[\empty]{name} but this messed up the text, and did not solve the problem \author[]{name} does not solve the problem either.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

    The achemso class is purely for submissions to the ACS: do not use it if that is not your intention.

The symbol is generated by the macro \acs@author@fnsymbol, which you can redefine to be empty.

Sample output



\title{Title of work}
\author{B. Me}
\affiliation{Here Uni.}
