Sorry that I wasn't clear. On the call, we discussed the need for both
ChemFormula and ChemEquation subjects. I wondered if both were necessary,
and so someone (via screen share) drew an example where both were needed.
The example I think was an equilibrium equation where at least one of the
formula involved using the single/double bond notation that overloads
equals/double bond and minus/single bond. So "=" appeared that was used
both ways; I'm not sure if there was also a "-" used both ways, but some
example that used both in the two different senses would be even better
than an example that used only one symbol both ways (note: the ion notation
isn't really an overload as its meaning is clear in the superscript
position of an element).  None of the examples in Elane's link (
https://docs.moodle.org/38/en/Chemistry_notation_using_mhchem) do that. I
like to use "real" examples rather than ones that don't make sense, and my
Chemistry knowledge is too rusty to remember bonds, hence my request.

Thanks,

    Neil
