Re: example of chemistry formula inside of chemistry expression

$$ \ce{ -CH =CH -C H2 } $$

This is ChemTeX for 砲H=CH-CH2

ChemteX is an extension of TeX for chemistry formulas, arrows etc. It automatically makes element symbols upright.

However double bond is still equals sign and the singlebond is hyphen in the middle but longer at he beginning.

Any Help?

Hi, Neil,

We can give you examples, but I壇 have no idea how to do it in MathML.

Our group is meeting today and, hopefully, we can come up with something.

This message originated from outside your organization


On the last call, someone had a nice example of chemical formulas using single/double bonds inside of a chemistry expression. Can someone send an example to me either via TeX or (preferably) MathML? The MathML CG is going to write up some examples of where adding semantics helps AT and that is a good example outside of the math domain.
