Mathpix Markdown (MMD)

We took standard Markdown and extended it with key LaTeX features and chemistry support.

Your LaTeX constructions are properly preserved during conversion to LaTeX, DOCX, HTML, and PDF.

Mathpix Markdown feature details
Mathpix Markdown feature details small

Markdown conversion optimized for scientific documents

Since Mathpix Markdown is a strict superset of Markdown, our conversion tooling for MMD is more powerful than what is possible with standard Markdown.

Document with an equation


Advanced support for math, physics, and statistics expressions via Mathjax, including equation references via the \eqref, \label, \ref commands

Document with a table


Full support for LaTeX style tabular environments in addition to Markdown style tables

Document with an image


Figures are preserved in the output documents as expected; for LaTeX outputs, which are returned as compressed zip files, they are put in a special images folder
