Hi icosane,

Some time ago, I participated in a thread that talked about multi-line equations in LaTeX. You can find it at http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=325387.

For your example, try something like:

[tex]
\begin{align}\begin{split}
NO_2 + CO~ &\xrightarrow{k_1}~ NO + NO_3\\
NO_3 + CO~ &\xrightarrow{k_2}~ NO_2 + CO_2 +XXXX +YYYYYY +ZZZZZZ
\end{split}\end{align}
[/tex]

To show you that the alignment is behaving:

[tex]
\begin{align}\begin{split}
NO_2 + CO~ &\xrightarrow{k_1}~ NO + NO_3\\
NO_3 + CO + XXXX + YYYYY + ZZZZZZ~ &\xrightarrow{k_2}~ NO_2 + CO_2 +XXXX +YYYYYY +ZZZZZZ
\end{split}\end{align}
[/tex]
