Bug 5856 - Add support for mhchem package in $markup  Summary: Add support for mhchem package in [itex] markup  Status: Product: RESOLVED WONTFIX MediaWiki extensions Unclassified Component: Math (Other open bugs) unspecified All All Low enhancement with 2 votes (vote) --- Nobody - You can work on this!

Yang 2006-05-06 22:11:12 UTC Currently, most chemical equations are represented in plain text or LaTeX (if there are complicated arrows, ions or symbols). These systems are cumbersome and difficult to use. Mhchem was developed as a solution for typesetting chemical equations, and comes with a quite intuitive syntax, e.g.: \ce{HCl + H2O -> Cl- + H3O+} It would be nice if we could use this package in the math environment, i.e. [itex]\ce{C6H12O6 ->M[\Delta] 6C + 6H2O}$. Additionally, creating a parser hook to automatically put the expression into \ce{} would offer nice convenience. There may be security issues with this, however. I do not know enough texvc to say.

Yes, that'd be nice... but perhaps the best possible solution would be to have a tag in addition, which will be agnostic as to what kind of TeX input it's getting. Then you can use *normal TeX markup in , including $...$ etc for math and \ce{} for chem *math markup in [itex], including \text{} for text and \ce{} for chem *mhchem markup in , including $...$ etc for math and \text{} for text  zasnuty 2010-03-10 15:44:56 UTC Just if someone would search for solution: Take a look at the bottom of site: http://wiki.biol.uw.edu.pl/w/Brudnopis#Pisanie_wzor.C3.B3w_chemicznych_z_u.C5.BCyciem_LaTeXa (found here: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:PSt , there is also contact email given) nageh 2012-05-03 17:09:20 UTC mhchem is available as an extension to MathJax. It may be worthwhile to add this support once MathJax is selected as the default rendering method. physikerwelt 2014-10-19 18:29:44 UTC Seems a very old request (from 2006). Please reopen if still needed. Peter Krautzberger 2014-10-20 09:20:14 UTC @Physikerwelt shouldn't this just work in MathML mode now? Or did mathoid intentionally dop the extension?
