# \emph and \ce in titles with ClassicThesis

I have to use the \emph command (for a latin word) and the \ce command (for chemical formulas and compounds) in titles but the result with ClassicThesis is awful! In particular the \emph command in scrheadings is all lowercase, while the \ce in titles is all uppercase. These is a solution for these problems? I would like to obtain something typographically decent.

Here is a MWE of the problem:

\documentclass[10pt,
a4paper,
twoside,openright,
%              oneside,openany,
titlepage,
BCOR5mm,
cleardoublepage=empty,
tablecaptionabove,
]{scrreprt}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage[version=3]{mhchem}

\usepackage[eulerchapternumbers,
%subfig,
beramono,
eulermath,
pdfspacing,
listings,
]{classicthesis}

\usepackage{arsclassica}

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents

\chapter{\emph{Ab initio} study of \ce{In_{0.17}Al_{0.18}N} compounds}

\clearpage

Blablabla

\end{document}

• Simple: the style you're using is not suitable for your needs. – egreg Jun 9 '16 at 10:36
• @egreg I see... An you suggest changing the titles or the style? There is a similar style mor adapted form my needs? – user17895 Jun 9 '16 at 11:51
• You could turn off the headers, or make them not use \spacedlowsmallcaps, or use short titles without chemical formulas for the headers (and TOC). \MakeTextLowercase can, I believe (but can't remember how right now) be told not to lowercase parts of the text. – PhilipPirrip Jun 9 '16 at 12:07
• @PhilipPirrip Do you want to write some kind of answer here? You are the classicthesis expert around :-) – Johannes_B May 7 '17 at 9:28
