Inductive effect

I want to draw Inductive effect on the bond of molecular. What is the code if I use ChemFig? Thank you.

  • The vast majority here doesn't have a background in chemistry. You should probably add a picture of the result you want to achieve. – clemens Jun 16 '16 at 14:05

As I'm sure you know when you have used chemfig already the bonds have optional arguments. The manual says:

6 Customization of bonds

There is a fifth and last optional argument for bonds which is found after the fourth comma:

[,,,,<tikz code>]

This means all you have to do is adding the TikZ code for an arrow:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{chemfig}

\tikzset{ ind/.tip = {>[sep=5pt]_.} }

\begin{document}

\chemfig{H-C(-[2])(-[6])-C(-[2])(-[6])-[,,,,->]Cl}

\chemfig{H-C(-[2])(-[6])-C(-[2])(-[6])-[,,,,-ind]Cl}

\end{document}

enter image description here

  • Both of your two ways is perfect and in chemistry, they are all accepted. I prefer the latter but I not so good in tikz. I learn alot from your posts. Thank you. – Gia Luan Jun 20 '16 at 16:44
