Manuscript Submission

Submission of a manuscript implies that: the work described has not been published before; it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else; its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities – tacitly or explicitly – at the institute where the work has been carried out. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.


Cover letter

The cover letter should include the corresponding authorinformation (the corresponding author’s name, affiliation and address, telephone/fax numbers, and e-mail address) and reasons must be given why it is necessary to publish the manuscript. (The cover letter should also be sent as a PDF file).

Manuscript Preparation

The following word processor file formats are acceptable:
Microsoft Word (97, 2003 and 2007) and PDF.

Types of Papers

  • Full      Paper

Full papers are comprehensive, conclusive reports that describe a significant contribution to the development of an importantarea of research and contain the results of experimental and/or theoretical studies.

  • Communication

Communications are intended for dissemination of the results of studies that are more limited in scope than those warranting a full paper.

  • Review

Review is a focused overview of a selected topic of interest covering more recent aspects of a subject in the area of interest. In general, it includes a concise overview of the author’s own research; reference to all appropriate work by others is essential. These may be critical reviews that present the authors' view of the current state of the subject or prospective articles intended to stimulate discussion and research.

Manuscript organization

The title should accurately reflect the contents of the manuscript. First letters of all words, except for conjunctions and prepositions should be capitalized. It should be brief and rich in informative words; it should not contain any literature references or compound numbers.

Authors’ Names and Affiliations

The authors' first name, middle initial(s) and last (family) name must be provided. The address should be written in a separate line under the title. Use the letters a, b, etc. as superscripts to relate authors to addresses and a star to indicate the corresponding author. Authors should also include a fax number and an e-mail address for correspondence.


Authors must include a short abstract from 100-150 words that briefly explains the purpose of the study, results, and major conclusion(s). Citations and references should not be given in abstracts.


Five keywords should be chosen to describe the main topics of the paper.


It should clearly state the background of the research with relevant references, as well as its purposes and significance, and should also include a brief statement of what is being reported in the article.

Results and Discussion

The results and discussion section should contain a description of the experimental results followed by a discussion of their significance.


This section interprets the novelty and significance of the work and should not duplicate the information presented in the text or abstract.


This section should describe the experimental methods used in the work in sufficient details to enable experienced experimental workers to repeat them. The purity degree of materials and their relative quantities should be provided. Descriptions of known compounds and established procedures are unnecessary but the literature data used to confirm the material identity should be cited. For new compounds, physical and spectroscopic data should be provided. Manufacturers and model names of the instruments used should be identified.


Acknowledgments should be brief and placed before the Reference section.


A complete list of all references should be provided at the end of the manuscript under the heading of References. Reference numbers are to be placed in square brackets after punctuation, in the order in which they are first cited in the text. The references should follow the American Chemical Society (ACS) style and journal abbreviations should be those listed in CASSI. A guide for preparing references in the ACS style is available at; for a more thorough discussion consult the ACS Style Guide. Sample citations for referencing a journal article appear below:
