|The Chemical Society of Nigeria publishes her peer reviewed journal twice every year. Well researched Articles from every branch of chemistry meant for publication should be sent by email attachment to email@example.com
INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
Authors are expected to report results of original research not published elsewhere. A review with useful innovations may be considered for publication if the summaries of the articles contain information from scattered literature that could stimulate research on the topic.

The abstract should be clear and concise. The abstract should give the scope, purpose, procedures, significant result and conclusions of the research work.
The introduction should contain the purpose of reason for the study being reported. Also highlight of previous and related work is required. The literature cited must be discussed to show the relationship between the published work and the research study.
Only highlight of procedures which are common knowledge should be included. Details should be referred to literature cited. New approaches or methodology should receive detailed attention.
8. Results and Discussion:

10. Tables, Graphs and Structural formulae
Tables and figures should be laced in the appropriate places within the text. Avoid grid lines. These must be prepared in such a way as to permit photo reproduction. Minimum character size must be 2.5. Where diagrams and graphs are provided, they should be incorporated into the manuscript and good transparencies provided.

Acknowledgement should be limited to a minimum. All assistance obtained in the form of finance as well as collection of data may be indicated.
References should be listed in a separate sheet. Follow the method of literature citation in most chemistry journals, e.g. J.L. Okogun, T.O. Olagbemiro & A.I. Onuchukwu (1999), title of paper, J. Chem. Soc. Nigeria, 2, 59. References cited in the text should bear the Arabic number subscripts and listed in order at the end of manuscript, e.g. “Kinetic evidence for the metal participation of … has been discussed elsewhere  or [2-5].
14. Computer Diskettes:
On acceptance of a MS, the Journal of the Chemical Society of Nigeria demands a diskettes of an error-free MS publication. The diskette prepared on IBM compatible system using Word perfect 6.0, Page Maker 6.0, MS Publisher, Window 95 & above. Also, we can accept MS prepared from systems running Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Excel. You are required to state the programme, system and file name as used on the diskette.
