Nano Letters Article Template



This is an example document for the achemso document class, intended for submissions to the American Chemical Society for publication. The class is based on the standard LaTeX2e report file, and does not seek to reproduce the appearance of a published paper.
This is an abstract for the achemso document class demonstration document. An abstract is only allowed for certain manuscript types. The selection of journal and manuscript will determine if an abstract is valid. If not, the class will issue an appropriate error.


This is a paragraph of text to fill the introduction of the demonstration file. The demonstration file attempts to show the modifications of the standard LaTeX macros that are implemented by the achemso class. These are mainly concerned with content, as opposed to appearance.

Results and discussion


The document layout should follow the style of the journal concerned. Where appropriate, sections and subsections should be added in the normal way. If the class options are set correctly, warnings will be given if these should not be present.


The class makes various changes to the way that references are handled. The class loads natbib, and also the appropriate bibliography style. References can be made using the normal method; the citation should be placed before any punctuation, as the class will move it if using a superscript citation style (Abarca 2000, Abernethy 2003, Friedman-Hill 2003, Communication from t...). The use of natbib allows the use of the various citation commands of that package: \citeauthorAbernethy2003 have shown something, in \citeyearCotton1999, or as given by Ref. \citenumMena2000. Long lists of authors will be automatically truncated in most article formats, but not in supplementary information or reviews (Frisch 2004). If you encounter problems with the citation macros, please check that your copy of natbib is up to date. The demonstration database file achemso-demo.bib shows how to complete entries correctly. Notice that “\latinet al.” is auto-formatted using the \latin command.
Multiple citations to be combined into a list can be given as a single citation. This uses the mciteplus package (Johnson 1972, (citation not found: *Arduengo1992) (citation not found: *Eisenstein2005) (citation not found: *Arduengo1994). Citations other than the first of the list should be indicated with a star. If the mciteplus package is not installed, the standard bibliography tools will still work but starred references will be ignored. Individual references can be referred to using \mciteSubRef: “ref. \mciteSubRefEisenstein2005”.
The class also handles notes to be added to the bibliography. These should be given in place in the document \bibnoteThis is a note. The text will be moved the the references section. The title of the section will change to “Notes and References”.. As with citations, the text should be placed before punctuation. A note is also generated if a citation has an optional note. This assumes that the whole work has already been cited: odd numbering will result if this is not the case (Cotton 1999).


New float types are automatically set up by the class file. The means graphics are included as follows (Scheme ???). As illustrated, the float is “here” if possible.
Your scheme graphic would go here: .eps format
for LaTeX  or .pdf (or .png) for pdfLaTeX
ChemDraw files are best saved as .eps files:
these can be scaled without loss of quality, and can be
converted to .pdf files easily using eps2pdf.
