In the Experimental Section, quantities of reactants, solvents etc. should be included in parentheses [e.g. A solution of triphenylphosphane (500 mg, 1.91 mmol) in dichloromethane (15 mL) was added to...].
All new compounds must be fully characterized and their purity verified by analytical methods appropriate to the discipline (e.g. high-resolution NMR spectroscopy, X-ray structure analysis, elemental analysis, etc.). Any deviations from the expected norm need to be explained.
NMR spectroscopic data should be quoted as in the following example: 1H NMR (300 MHz, C6D6, 25°C): δ = 1.3 (s, 18 H, SiMe3), 0.9 (d, 3JH,H = 5.7 Hz, 2 H, 2-H) ppm. For each chemical shift, additional information should be given in the order: multiplicity, coupling constant, number of protons, assignment.
The purity of all new compounds should be verified by elemental analysis to an accuracy within ±0.4 %. In special cases, for instance when the compound is unstable or not available in sufficient quantities for complete analysis, the exact relative molecular mass obtained from a high-resolution mass spectrum and a clean 13C NMR spectrum (as additional material for inspection by the referees) should be supplied.
Corrected/uncorrected melting points: According to the IUPAC Gold Book, "The term originally signified that a correction was made (not made) for the emergent stem of the thermometer. In current usage it often means that the accuracy of the thermometer was (was not) verified. This current usage is inappropriate and should be abandoned."
