How To Create Chemistry Equations and Diagrams in MS-Word ?

Microsoft’s new Education Labs has recently released the new Chemistry Add-in for Word 2007 and 2010. This free download adds support for entering and editing chemistry symbols, diagrams, and formulas using the standard XML based Chemical Markup Language.

You can convert any chemical name, such as benzene, or formula, such as H2O, into a chemical diagram, standard name, or formula. Whether you’re a professional chemist, just taking chemistry in school, or simply curious about the makeup of Citric Acid, this add-in is an exciting way to bring chemistry to your computer.

This add-in works great on Word 2007 and 2010, including the 64 bit version of Word 2010. Please note that the current version is still in beta, so only run it if you are comfortable running beta products.

How To Start?
Download the Chemistry add-in from Microsoft Education Labs, and unzip the file. Then, run the ChemistryAddinforWordBeta2.Setup.msi.
It may inform you that you need to install the Visual Studio Tools for Office 3.0. Simply click Yes to download these tools.
This will open the download in your default browser. Simply click run, or save and then run it when it is downloaded.
Now, click next to install the Visual Studio Tools for Office as usual.
When this is finished, run the ChemistryAddinforWordBeta2.Setup.msi again. This time, you can easily install it with the default options.
Once it’s finished installing, open Word to try out the Chemistry Add-in. You will be asked if you want to install this customization, so click Install to enable it.
Now you will have a new Chemistry tab in your Word ribbon.
