This is indeed a possibility. But I still regard it as bug that PPCHTeX
uses italic in the title. (The title itself is *not* italic, I'm also
not asking that the font/style should follow the surrounding text,
though a \setupchemical option which toggles this would be great.)

(Using \molecule as defined in the wiki is an alternative; your problem
was different as you wanted the symbol to follow the style of the
surrounding text. This would work as well here, but is actually the
solution for a different problem.)

Tobias,
who will now use \molecule{}.
