There is a workaround for it. Basically, you need to export your documents/references in a BibTex file in Mendeley, and then open it in your LaTex software. (For your information, BibTex is a reference and citation file format that can be used in conjunction with LaTeX documents)

There are quite a few steps involved. The very first and crucial one is: In Mendeley Desktop, go to

Tools --> Options --> BibTex, and then check off the appropriate boxes as shown below:

There are various LaTex editors/software available on the market. For your information, Mendeley has recently launched an integration with a LaTex editor called writeLaTex, which makes importing documents from Mendeley to writeLaTex easier.
