# 2D - Chemistry structures

Wondering about whether $$\displaystyle{\LaTeX}$$ can be used to draw chemical structures {which is indeed possible} , I found THIS. And then I tried "$$\chemfig{*4(----)}$$". But brilliant is not responding to this markdown code!
I just wanted to know the reason behind this.

Good question. The LaTeX package that renders these images is complex and causes a lot of problems on Brilliant for people, so we have left it disabled so far. We may enable it in the future when it stops being so buggy.
