Hello everybody. As you all can see the curved arrow doesn't point to the positive carbon as it should, but it kink of turn around the bond. How can I solve this? Thanks in advance for any answer!

\schemestart
\chemfig{@{a2}C^{\oplus}(-[:90]CH_3)(-[:180]CH_3)(-[:270]CH_3)}\chemfig{\+ @{a1}Cl^{\ominus}}\arrow{<=>}\chemfig{C(-[:0]Cl)(-[:90]CH_3)(-[:180]CH_3)(-[:270]CH_3)}
\schemestop
\chemmove{\draw(a1)..  controls +(100:5mm) and +(145:5mm)..  (a2);}
  • Try @{a2}{C^{\oplus}} instead. – user121799 Nov 7 '18 at 19:10

    Well, you can try to draw to (a2.east) in addition, and if that doesn't help, please provide a complete minimal working example. – user121799 Nov 7 '18 at 19:20

You should write instead

\schemestart
\chemfig{@{a2}C^{\oplus}(-[:90]CH_3)(-[:180]CH_3)(-[:270]CH_3)}\chemfig{\+ @{a1}Cl^{\ominus}}
\arrow{<=>}\chemfig{C(-[:0]Cl)(-[:90]CH_3)(-[:180]CH_3)(-[:270]CH_3)}
\schemestop
\chemmove{\draw(a1)..  controls +(100:5mm) and +(45:5mm)..  (a2);}
