, JACS, JOC, Macromolecules) 1) 2) 3) 4) Each section is on a separate page. Use equations and pictures liberally in the text. Since a paper usually takes many drafts, a word processor is very helpful. Use underlining to indicate italics in text (if you don't have that font) and wavy lines to indicate bold face in text (if you don't have that font). 5) 6) 7) 8) 9) Center section headings and make them bold face. Use ACS format references to support all dubious, arguable, or background statements. Leave an extra space after each section title. Double margin justify where feasible. The paper must be stapled all together, then each appendix should be stapled together and the whole thing handed in a labeled file folder. 10) Number all pages from 1 to xxx. Number appendices separately (e.g. A1.1 to A1.xxx, A2.1 to A2.xxx, etc.) 11) It is conventional that papers are written in the passive voice and mostly in the past tense.

Remember.e.3 Abstract The abstract is a short-medium paragraph that provides an executive summary of the results of your work (generally <100 words). /var/www/apps/conversion/current/tmp/scratch12416/88347167. It should stand on its own (i. It summarizes what you tried to make. any derivatives prepared/reaction carried out on them.

For example.4 Introduction The introduction sets up the "story" that you are trying to sell. what are some common reactions/derivatives of PR3 (some of these will be relevant to reactions you did)? What is the literature background of your specific PR3? What have people said or done on it before? What were you trying to do in this research you are now reporting? What compounds will you report and how will they be characterized? /var/www/apps/conversion/current/tmp/scratch12416/88347167. It provides background material and tries to convince the reader (referee) of the works importance. what are PR3's used for? In general.
