    Basically I need to draw the reaction that hexokinase catalyses, using structural formulae. I'm not really sure the best way of going about drawing structural formulae in a word document, especially as this reaction involves a ring molecule and phosphate groups. I have to submit this work electronically, otherwise I would just draw it.

    Any ideas?

    you can download free chemistry software of the internet (full versions) for drawing such reactions. I have done it in the past. if you just type into google something like drawing chemical equations or chemistry software you will find links to very good free packages

    You can get a free version of Isis of the web

    It's not as advanced as Chemdraw but should do the job

    Hmm, do you know how to write them like CH3COOH for ethanoic acid? Can get a bit tricky with more complex structures though. Or you can try SMILES format.
