I am writing a JACS communication Supporting Information in Latex using achemso package where the manuscript type set to suppinfo.


I am then calling for the contents (sections and subsections) with:


As here in the simplified form

\title{Title goes here}



\section{Header 1}
\subsection{Header 1.1}
\subsection{Header 1.2}
\subsection{Header 1.3}
\subsection{Header 1.4}
\section{Header 3}
\section{Header 4}
\section{Header 5}
\section{Header 6}


But I get an empty contents section enter image description here

How can I fix that?

  • Do you compile your document twice? Welcome to TeX.SE! – Zarko May 9 '17 at 12:20
  • Yes I did multiple times but doesn't work.. Thanks! – Yigit Altay May 9 '17 at 12:21
  • unfortunately I'n not familiar with achemso document class. With article your MWE works as expected. Hopefully here are some users who will be able help you. – Zarko May 9 '17 at 12:38
  • indeed it is something related to the achemso package. I also tried with simple article class and it works... – Yigit Altay May 9 '17 at 12:42

The standard settings used unnumbered sections for supinfo: these are not written to the .toc file. You need to add


before \begin{document} to reactivate them.

  • it worked like a charm! Thanks a lot Joseph! – Yigit Altay May 9 '17 at 14:14
