(The abstract of the manuscript should not exceed 350 words. Abide strictly by this limitation of
length. The abstract should comprehensively but succinctly describe the contents of the paper to the
reader, and abbreviations and reference citations should be avoided.) Introduction: Briefly state the
problem/issue addressed and background, in language accessible to a general scientific audience.
Method: Briefly summarize the method used to address the problem. Results: Provide a brief summary
of the results and findings. Conclusions: Give brief concluding remarks on your outcomes.

The background section should be written from
the standpoint of researchers without specialist
knowledge in that area and must clearly state -
and, if helpful, illustrate - the background to
the research and its aims. The section should
end with a very brief statement of what is
being reported in the article [1].

This can be divided into subsections if several
methods are described [2].

Subsection 1 numerals and even at the beginning

Result and Discussion Length
No. Characters
The Results and Discussion may be combined (cm)
into a single section or presented separately.
They may also be broken into subsections with ..
short, informative headings.

This should state clearly the main conclusions
of the research and give a clear explanation of
their importance and relevance. Summary
illustrations may be included.

Abbreviations should be follow SI symbols and those recommended by the IUPAC. Abbreviations
should be defined in brackets after their first mention in the text. Standard units of measurements and
chemical symbols of elements may be used without definition in the body of the paper.

Preparing illustrations and figures

Figures and images should be labelled sequentially, numbered and cited in the text. Figures should be
referred to specifically in the text of the paper but should be embedded within the text. The legends
should be included from the main manuscript text file and being a part of the figure file (using Arabic
numerals, maximum figure title is 15 words and detailed legend, up to 300 words). The use of three-
dimensional histograms is strongly discouraged when the addition of the third dimension gives no
extra information. The following file formats can be accepted:
PDF (also especially suitable for diagrams)
PNG (preferred format for photos or images)
Microsoft Word (figures must be a single page)
Power Point (figures must be a single page)

Preparing tables
These should be should be numbered in sequence using Arabic numerals (i.e. Table 1, 2, 3 etc.). Tables
should also have a title that summarizes the whole table, maximum 15 words. Table should be
embedded into the text file but in portrait format (note that tables on a landscape page must be
reformatted onto a portrait page or submitted as additional files).

Preparing additional files

Supplementary information is peer-reviewed material directly relevant to the conclusion of an article
that cannot be included in the printed version owing to space or format constraints. Any additional
files will be linked into the final published article in the form supplied by the author, but will not be
displayed within the paper. They will be made available in exactly the same form as originally
If additional material is provided, please list the following information in a separate section of the
manuscript text, at the end of the document text file:
