Is it possible to increase the size of the circle in the aromatic ring (i.e. the circle is "closer" to the hexagon).

Example: Desired size

Current: Current size

Thank you!

It is not easy to scale the inner circle via the scale option since the scaled circle is not centered, but you could use a \chemmove command and draw the circle later. There is also the option cycle radius coeff which is set to 0.75 per default but can be changed to a larger number:





\chemmove{\draw (cyclecenter1) circle[radius=0.8];}

\setchemfig{cycle radius coeff=0.875}
% or: \chemfig[cycle radius coeff=0.875]{**6(---(-OMe)---)}
