The abstracts for RheManTec should be submitted in the format of this document. They will thus be an A4 page with 1.8 and 2.5 cm margins top and bottom, respectively, and side margins of 2.5cm. The preferred font is Times New Roman, single spaced. The abstract including the title, author affiliations, and any references should not exceed one page: if they do they will not be accepted and will be returned to the author(s) for further editing and resubmission.

Fonts and Formatting. Please retain the fonts and paragraph settings in this template. Do not edit or add anything to the Header/Footer fields in the document.

Title. Only two lines for the title are strongly recommended.

Authors. Please use superscript letters to indicate author affiliations as shown in the format above. The presenting author’s name must be underlined and his/her e-mail address included after the relevant address.

Structure Block/Scheme. A ChemDraw, ISISDraw, ChemWindows or ChemSketch figure that summarizes the compound(s) studied or depicts the work undertaken must be copied and pasted in the frame as indicated in this template. ORTEP or other high-quality diagrams are also acceptable.

The abstracts will be published in black and white, so color is unnecessary. A high-quality (1200 dpi) black and white/grayscale JPG or TIFF bitmap image (no bigger than 300 KB, i.e., use compression on export in Corel Draw, for example) is strongly recommended.

The first line of each paragraph should not be indented and there should be no blank lines between paragraphs. References (if any) should be indicated by numbers in square brackets [1], [2]…etc. in the text and be given at the end of the abstract [1] below the footnote line.
