# [texhax] Chemical reactions in Latex

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

\begin{subequations}
\label{1st_equ}
\begin{align}
\dot{X} &= P+Q \\
\dot{Y} &= Q^2 \\
\end{align}
\end{subequations}

After that I am writing the chemical reactions

\begin{subequations}
\label{1st_reaction}
\begin{align}
A+B &\rightarrow  C \\
C+D &\rightarrow  A+E \\
\end{align}
\end{subequations}

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 reaction
numbers and give reaction number manually and in mhchem bundle have no such
function.

Is there any way out ??

Thanks
