! LaTeX Error: File `mhchem.sty’ not found error

Postby templateuser » Sat Mar 21, 2015 9:46 am

I downloaded the package which includes 3 files: lab_report_1.tex, placeholder.jpg, and sample.bib

But I can’t run (typeset) the tex file. :(

Here’s the error message: “! LaTeX Error: File `mhchem.sty’ not found.

Where is the sty file?

Hi Navid,

It looks like you’re missing the mhchem package. You can get it in one of two ways: 1) your LaTeX distribution should have a package manager which you can use to download and update packages – you should be able to download it through this 2) you can search for the mhchem.sty, download it and put it in the directory of the template tex file.

Welcome, it seems like this is a completely different and unrelated topic. Please open up new thread.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Hi Jenni,

welcome to the forum!

Feel free to open a new topic. You can just click the "New topic" button in a sub forum list. So we can see your question easily. Here, in a "mhchem.sty"-topic nobody expects some graphics file related issue.

It was already said by Johannes, mainly I wanted to add: post some more information, such as: what is your file called "1" - a jpg, png, pdf, eps or any other file, and how do you compile your file. As said, in a new topic, your own one. We got space for millions of topics, so don't hesitate.
