Tables
Tables should be designed to be as simple as possible. Each table should be on a separate page, numbered consecutively and supplied with a heading and a legend if any. Tables must be self-explanatory without reference to the text. Tables are to be typed double-spaced throughout, including headings and footnotes and should be prepared in Microsoft Word. Place the caption of the table above table. Place explanatory matters below the table.

Figures
Should be typed in numerical order on a separate sheet. Graphics should be prepared using applications capable of generating high resolution GIF, TIFF, JPEG or PowerPoint before pasting in the Microsoft Word. Use Arabic numerals to designate figures and upper case letters for their parts (Figure 1). Begin each legend with a title and include sufficient description so that the figure is understandable without reading the text of the manuscript. Information given in legends should not be repeated in the text.

Abbreviations

Gibson, University of Washington, U.S.A). Journal names are abbreviated according to Chemical Abstracts. Authors are fully responsible for the accurate citing of the references.
