Yes, there is.  Simply hack the equation environment and define a new
chemeqn environment ...
Normally in a thesis you want to refer to reaction (x) and you rarely
need chapter reference as in equation (3.2), that is,  the second eqn in
chapter 2 .... that is one big advantage of separating mathematical and
chemical equations

Hi to all,

I am writing my thesis in Latex, and I have lot of equation.

But along with this I have several chemical reactions and I want to use
different numbering system for the chemical reactions.

For an example my first equation is

\dot{X} &= P+Q \\
\dot{Y} &= Q^2 \\

After that I am writing the chemical reactions

  A+B &\rightarrow  C \\
  C+D &\rightarrow  A+E \\

In the output the reactions are numbered as continuation of equation,
But I
want to give reactions a different numbering.

I have tried to use   \tag{number} and he  mhchem Bundle for chemical
reactions too. In case of \tag{number} I have to keep track of all
numbers and give reaction number manually and in mhchem bundle have no

Is there any way out ??
