In TEX , a computerized type setting system, the TEX macro commands were made and defined in order to print out any symbols that might be needed in chemistry. When a document has to be made by TEX , the pictograms, such as structural formulas for chemical compounds, tools for chemical experiments and so on , the periodic tables, Bohr's models of hydrogenlike atoms and hazardous labels for chemical compounds, are able to be inserted easily in the document by these TEX commands.
