[Tex/LaTex] Rightarrow with a Delta on it (for use with the mhchem package)


I have a small problem with arrows. I need a \rightarrow with a \Delta on it. Can you help me, please? I use the chemistry package \usepackage[version=3]{mhchem}.

Best Answer

mhchem's formulas implicitly use math mode so you can use \Delta directly. The syntax inside mhchem's \ce{} macro for a right arrow is:


where both arguments are optional and above and below are placed in math mode. (mhchem also loads amsmath by the way.)

\ce{ A + B ->[\Delta] C }

The mhchem manual actually has an example for this :)
