Since by default achemso produces fonts for title/author/affiliation different from main text (as given in achemso demo pdf). How can I set the font throughout the document to the default document of main text (which I presume is Times).


  • Can I ask why you want to fiddle with things? (The set up is all CM, sanserif in the headers, serif in the body.)

  • It just looks better to have all the fonts consistent (especially title). I am not sure if ACS people do not recommend changing the default fonts though. Is that the case?

    The recommendation is to change only what you have to: the class is for journal submission and alterations are agreed with the ACS.

Whilst not advertised, there are a series of abstractions in the class to set this:

  • \affilfont
  • \authorfont
  • \emailfont
  • \titlefont

all of which can be set to whatever you like.
