I 'm quoting verbatim an old post in this list which is available in
the archive at:



1. XyMTeX system which has the following independent packages:

   chemstr ==> basic typesetting commands for atoms and bonds
   aliphat ==> aliphatic compounds
   carom   ==> vertical and horizontal carbocyclic compounds
   ccycle  ==> bicyclic compounds, etc
   lowcycle==> carbocyle with five members or fewer
   hcycle  ==> pyranose and furanose derivatives
   hetarom ==> vertical hertocyclic compounds
   hetaromh==> horizontal heterocyclic compounds

These packages can be loaded with \usepackge command individually or 

2. ppchTeX ==> Part of ConTeXt and works with both plain TeX and LaTeX

It should be available in your teTeX system or you can download from
any of the mirrors of CTAN.


LaTeX Graphics Companion described in detail ppchTeX and ChemTeX.
