Like figure below, I want to write phi and CH4 for diffrent font type.
(phi should be Italic but CH4 should not. & CH4 must be a subscription of phi)
How can i do this?

You can achieve that by using a underscore _, following what you'd want subscripted. You can group something by placing it within curly brackets.
In this case:
xlabel('\phi_{CH_4}')
phiCH4.png
If you want a longer subscript, you should place that subscript also within curly brackets:
xlabel('\phi_{D_{solid}}')

I've editted my answer and included screenshots. Lowercase \phi is italic.

Hi,
interestingly, subscripting does not work in combination with the boxplot function.
Any help appreciated.
A=rand(100,1)
boxplot(A)
set(gca, 'XTickLabel', {'test_{hey}'})
