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
(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.
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 ???
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.
