This example shows how a striking chemistry presentation can be created with a few simple LaTeX commands.
I've used two great chemistry packages that are freely available for LaTeX: mhchem and Chemfig to create the diagrams.
This example demonstrates how the chemnum package can be used to automatically number compounds in reaction schemes created with ChemDraw (saved as .eps files). While the chemstyle/chemscheme package can also be used, its author recommends the use of chemnum as it's deemed to be clearer.
Ideally, the ChemDraw-generated .eps files should contain "TMP1", "TMP2" etc as temporary markers, which will then be replaced with automatically incrementing compound counters using the \replacecmpd command. Set your Overleaf project's compiler to be LaTeX (required for .eps images) when using this method.
In this lab we will convert solid magnesium to solid magnesium oxide. We intend to confirm the formula of our product by comparing the experimental and theoretical percent magnesium along with the experimental and theoretical mass produced of magnesium oxide.
