3.2. Further, after the indentation of the line, the title of the article is indicated in capital letters, the font is bold, the text is aligned to the center. The title should describe the content of the article as fully and accurately as possible, include keywords that reflect the direction and / or the main result of the research, but at the same time be short and clear and not contain abbreviations.

3.3. Further, after the indentation of the line, the initials and surnames of the author(s) are indicated in capital letters, the font is not bold, italics, the text is centered. The surname of the author with whom the correspondence should be carried out should be marked with an asterisk (*): C. S. SATAEVA *, A. M. DZHUBANALIEVA.

3.4. A line is followed by the name (s) of the organizations (in the English text it is necessary to indicate the officially accepted translation of the name) (indicate the part of the name of the organization that refers to the concept of a legal entity), city, country). In the English version, address information must be submitted in English, incl. city ​​and country. Given in lowercase letters, center alignment.

Lines with the names of the authors and the names of organizations contain superscripts (after the last name and before the name of the organization) indicating the place of work of the authors.

The next line contains the email address for correspondence. Given in italics, center alignment of the text.

3.5. Abstract consists of a short text (at least 150-300 words) in the language of the article, which is published in international databases in isolation from the main text; it must be autonomous, all introduced designations and abbreviations must be deciphered here.

A structured resume that repeats the structure of the article and includes: introduction, goals and objectives, methods, results, conclusion (conclusions) is welcomed. At the same time, the goals and objectives are described, if they are not clear from the title of the article, the methods should be described if they are new. The summary includes new results of long-term importance, important discoveries that refute existing theories, and data of practical importance. You should use the technical (special) terminology of your discipline.

The abstract should not contain numbers of compounds, experimental data, abbreviations and references to literature. It is given with paragraph indentation in lowercase letters, center alignment of the text.

SUMMARY only one thing - at the beginning of the text. At the end of the article, after the List of References (before References), there is an additional translation of the SUMMARY into Kazakh (ТҮЙІНДЕМЕ) and into English.

3.6. Further, in the language of the article, keywords are given (from 5 to 10 pcs.), Providing the most complete disclosure of the content of the article. Given in lowercase letters, left-aligned text.

3.7. The article begins with an introduction, which formulates the purpose and necessity of conducting the research, briefly highlights the state of the issue with links to the most significant publications, avoiding references to outdated results. The discoveries made in the course of this study are presented. The structure of the article is indicated.

3.8. Then, in the section Results and discussion, which is the most important, one should discuss and explain the results obtained in the work, analyze the features of the synthesis, demonstrate and discuss possible limitations. Compare your results with those published earlier. All new compounds must be fully characterized by appropriate spectroscopic data. The text summarizes and explains only those spectral data that are used to confirm the structure of the compounds obtained. Enumeration of the same data in the text, tables and figures is not allowed. For new synthetic methods, it is desirable to discuss the reaction mechanism. To summarize the data, it is necessary to use clear figures and tables. Illustrations are essential because figures and tables are often the most effective way to present results. The data presented must be amenable to interpretation. When discussing results, the official IUPAC terminology must be followed.

It is recommended to present the results in the past tense.

The discussion should not repeat the description of the research results. The abbreviations generally accepted in the scientific literature should be used in the text. Non-standard abbreviations should be deciphered after the first appearance in the text. Units of measurement should be indicated in the International SI system. At the end of the section, it is recommended to formulate a conclusion in which to indicate the main achievements presented in the article, and the main conclusion containing the answer to the question posed in the introductory part of the article, as well as the possibility of using the material of the article in fundamental or applied research.

3.9 The experimental part contains the course description, experiment results, and the characteristics of the obtained compounds. At the beginning of the experimental part, the names of the devices are given, on which the physicochemical characteristics of substances are recorded, and the measurement conditions are indicated. The sources of the non-trivial reagents used are indicated as well (for example, "commercial preparations, company name"), or references to the methods of their preparation are given.  

Each paragraph of the experimental part, describing the preparation of a particular compound, must contain its full name according to the IUPAC nomenclature and its serial number in the article. In preparative procedures, it is imperative to indicate the number of reagents in molar and mass units (for catalysts - mass and molar percent), volumes of solvents. The experimental procedure is stated in the past tense. For known substances synthesized by a previously published method, reference should be made to the literature data. For known substances obtained by new or modified methods, their physical and spectral characteristics to confirm the identity of the structure, the method of synthesis, and a reference to the literature data should be used. If the new compounds have not been satisfactorily characterized in the opinion of the reviewer or editor, the article will not be accepted for publication.

Example procedure: 3-(2-Amino-6-methylpyridino)-3-carbonyl-3,4-dihydrocoumarin (12).To the alcoholic solution of 2.18 g (0.01 mol) of 3-carbethoxycoumarin, 1.08 g (0.01 mol) of 2-amino-6-methylpyridine was added with stirring. The mixture was boiled for 10 h. The reaction was monitored by TLC solution was cooled, the precipitate was filtered. Then it was washed with cold EtOH. After the drying and recrystallization of the residue from i-PrOH yield of the product 12 was 2.05 g (63%), mp 226–228 °C, Rf 0.82 (1/2, EtOAc/hexane as eluent). Spectroscopic data. Found, %: C 68.41; H 4.22; N 9.83. M+280. C16H12N2O3. Calculated, %: C 68.56; H 4.32; N 9.99. M 280.08.

For all compounds synthesized for the first time, it is necessary to provide evidence of the structure attributed to them and data that allow judging their individuality and degree of purity. In particular, elemental analysis data or high-resolution mass spectra, IR and 1Н and13С NMR spectra should be submitted. For known substances synthesized by a previously published method, reference should be made to the literature. In exceptional cases, the Journal publishes micrographs, pictures of NMR and IR spectra.

X-ray structural analysis data are presented in the form of figures and tables. All new compounds, the X-ray structural data are given in the article, must be registered in the Cambridge Structural Database and have the corresponding CCDC numbers.  

3.10 Acknowledgments enable you to thank all those who have helped in carrying out the research: the foundation that financed the work, as well as the individuals who were involved in the preparation of the publication.

3.11. The article ends with a list of references with references in Russian and in the original language. References in the text are given in ordinal Arabic numerals in square brackets as they are mentioned. Preferably, each reference should contain only one literary quotation. The list of references should be presented by the most recent and relevant sources. Avoid excessive self-citations.

The links evaluate the value and recognition of the specific authors' works, the scientific level of the journal, organizations, and countries in general, the relevance of scientific directions and problems is determined. Therefore, high requirements are imposed on this component of scientific articles. A link to a publication in a peer-reviewed scientific article is one of the main indicators of the quality, or at least the readability of that publication. An article with a representative list of references demonstrates the professional outlook and quality level of the authors. A small amount of cited bibliography can adversely affect the evaluation of the Journal by international citation bases.

The list of cited literature is drawn up in accordance with the below samples of bibliographic descriptions (4.8.).

3.12. The List of References is followed by a Summary in two of the three languages, which is distinct from the main text. Indicated: title of the article, initials, and surnames of authors, resume, keywords.


4.1. The volume of the article, including abstract and bibliography: up to 8-10 pages. Review articles can be up to 20 pages long. The article should be typed on one side of A4 paper in Times New Roman font, size 14 pt; line spacing - single and margins: top - 2 cm, bottom - 2 cm, left - 3 cm, right - 1.5 cm; hyphenation is not allowed; paragraph indent - 1.0 cm; formatting - justified. The text editor Microsoft Word for Windows must be used, in the form of a doc file, version 7.0 and later.

For brevity and clarity of discussion, the compounds mentioned more than once should be numbered with Arabic numerals in combination with lowercase Latin letters (to denote compounds with a variable substituent). When the full name of a compound is mentioned, the cipher is given in brackets.

Stereochemical symbols and prefixes characterizing structural features or the position of a substituent in a molecule should be typed in italic: (R) -enantiomer, tert-butyl, para-xylene. Instead of cumbersome names for inorganic and often used organic compounds, their formulas should be given: NaBr, TsOH instead of sodium bromide and toluenesulfonic acid. When using terms and designations that are not widely used in the literature, their meanings are explained in the text at the first use: for example, polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

To display the structural formulas of chemical compounds, you must use the ChemDrawUltra chemical formula editor. All legends on the diagrams should be in English. It is necessary to indicate all reaction conditions in the scheme: above the arrow: reagents, catalysts, solvents, under the arrow: temperature, time, and yield. If the reaction conditions heavily load the scheme, they can be transferred to the end of the scheme, decoding with letter indices, for example, i: HCl, H2O, 80°C, 5h. The same letter index should be indicated above the arrow of the corresponding reaction.

4.2. Equations, diagrams, tables, figures, and literature references are numbered in the order they are mentioned in the text and should be inserted into the text of the article after the first mention. Tables and figures must be accompanied by a signature; headers for diagrams are given if necessary.

4.3. If possible, prepare figures using a computer. The same type of curves must be drawn on the same scale in the same figure. Curves in figures are numbered with Arabic numerals, which are deciphered in figure captions. For all figures, it is necessary to submit graphic files in jpg format with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. Inscriptions on figures should be in English and, if possible, be replaced by numbers, the decoding of which is given in the figure caption.

Single straight lines, as a rule, do not lead, but are replaced by the equation of the regression line. The intersection of the coordinate axes should be located in the left corner of the figure, arrows at the ends of the axes are not set, the lines limiting the figure field are not shown, and the scale grid is not applied. Informative figures, spectra not discussed in the article, voltammograms and other dependencies are not published. Figures of the required spectra should not be made by hand. All figures should be numbered in Arabic numerals (if there is more than one figure). The word “Figure” and the name are placed after the explanatory data and are positioned as follows: Figure 1 - Details of the device.

4.4. Each table should have a thematic heading and a sequential Arabic number (without a number sign), which is referenced in the text (table 1). The table title is located above the table on the left without indentation in one line with its number through a dash without a period after the title. Columns in the table should have short headings reflecting the parameters, the numerical values ​​of which are given in the table; they are written in the nominative singular with a capital letter and separated by commas are accompanied by the appropriate units of measurement (in abbreviated form). Figures or structural formulas in the columns of tables are not allowed. Gaps in the columns in the absence of data are indicated by three dots, in the absence of the phenomenon - by a dash.

Notes to tables are indexed in Arabic numerals and are placed within the boundaries of the table under the table material. The word “Note” should be capitalized from the paragraph. If there is only one note, then a dash is placed after the word “Note” and the note is printed with a capital letter. Several notes are numbered in the order in Arabic numerals without a period and are printed from the paragraph. The tables use the same font as the text of the article; reduced (no less than 10 font Times New Roman) is allowed.

4.5. When choosing units of measurement, it is recommended to adhere to the SI system: g, mg, m, cm, μm (micrometer, micron); nm (nanometer, millimicron); pm (picometer); Å (angstroms); s (second); min, h (hour), Hz (hertz); MHz (megahertz); Oe (oersted); G (gauss); V (volts); eV (electron volt); A (ampere); Ohm, Pa (pascal); MPa (megapascal); hPa (hectopascal); J (joule); K (Kelvin), °C (degree Celsius); D (Debye).

In decimal fractions, the whole part is separated from the fractional part not by a comma but by a point.

The following abbreviations are used: b.p. and m.p. (boiling and melting points) - before the numbers; conc. (concentrated before compound formula); M is molecular weight; mol, gal, Eq, cal, kcal, n. (normal), M. (molar); the concentration of solutions is indicated (g / cm3, g / l, mol / l).

For all newly synthesized compounds, elemental analysis data or high-resolution mass spectra are required.

In gross formulas, the elements are arranged in the following order: C, H and further according to the Latin alphabet. Formulas for molecular compounds and onium salts are given through a dot (for example, С5H5N.HCl). An example of recording constants and elemental analysis data: b.p. 78°C (100 mm Hg), m.p. 50°С (EtOH), d420 0.9809, nD20 1.5256; MRD 50.68, MRD 50.68, calc. 51.07. Spectroscopic characteristics. Found, %: C 59.06; H 7.05; I 21.00; N 8/01; Nact. 1.51. М+ 145. СaHbIcNdOe. Calculated, %: C 59.02; H 7.01; I 21.20; N 8.22; Nact.1.36. М+ 144.88.  

IR and UV spectra. The characteristic frequencies of the bands, the wavelengths of the absorption maxima, the extinction coefficients (or their logarithms), and the conditions under, which the spectrum was recorded, should be indicated in the experimental part for IR and UV spectra.

Recording examples:

IR spectrum (thin layer), ν, cm– 1: 1650 (C = N), 3200–3440 (O – H). UV spectrum (EtOH), λmax, nm (logε): 242 (4.55), 380 (4.22).

1H and 13C NMR spectra. The operating frequency of the instrument, the used standard, and the used solvent should be indicated. Protons in the composition of complex groups to which the signal belongs should be emphasized below –3.17–3.55 (4H, m, N(CH2CH3)2); for the position of the substituents, use the designations 3-CH3; to indicate the position of atoms - C-3, N-4, etc. If any signal in the spectrum is described as a doublet, triplet, or doublet of doublets, etc. (and not a singlet or multiplet), it is necessary to give the corresponding coupling constants. If additional investigations are carried out to establish the structure or spatial interactions of atoms, the two-dimensional methods used should be indicated. In the description of 13C NMR spectra, the assignment of a particular signal to a particular carbon atom is given only when the determination is made based on two-dimensional experiments.

Recording examples:

1H NMR spectrum (400 MHz, CDCl3), δ, ppm (J, Hz): 0.97 (3H, t, J = 7.0, CH3); 3.91 (2H, q, J = 7.0, COOCH2); 4.46 (2H, d, J = 6.1, NCH2); 7.10-7.55 (9H, m, H-6,7,8, NHCH2C6H5); 7.80 (1H, s, HAr); 7.97 (1H, s, H-5'); 8.13 (1H, dd, J = 8.2, J = 2.3, H-5); 11.13 (1H, s, NH).

13C NMR spectrum (100 MHz, DMSO-d6), δ, ppm (J, Hz): 36.3 (CH2CH3); 48.5 (C-5); 62.3 (CH2CH3); 123.0 (CAr); 125.8 (d, 2JCF = 26.1, C-3 ', 5' Ar); 128.9 (CPh); 134.4 (C-5a); 168.3 (C = O).

Mass spectra are given in the form of numerical values ​​of m/z and relative values ​​of ionic current. It is necessary to indicate the method and energy of ionization, mass numbers of characteristic ions, their intensity to the main ion, and, if possible, their genesis. In the case of chemical ionization, the reagent gas must be specified when describing the device. In high-resolution mass spectra, the found and calculated m/z values ​​are given with four decimal places; if the m/z value found corresponds to a non-molecular ion, the gross formula and the calculated m/z value are also given for the same ion. An example of recording mass spectrum data:

Example of recording mass spectrum data:

Mass spectrum (EI, 70 eV), m/z (Irel, %): 386 [М]+ (36),368 [М–Н2О]+ (100), 353 [М–Н2О–CH3]+ (23).

Mass spectrum (CI, 200 eV), m/z (Irel, %): 387 [М+Н]+(100), 369 [М+Н–Н2О]+ (23).

Example of recording high resolution mass spectrum data:

Found, m/z: 282.1819 [М+Na]+. C17H25NNaO.

Calculated, m/z: 282.1828.

4.6. X-ray diffraction data should be presented in the form of a picture of a molecule with numbered atoms, for example, C (1), N (3) (possibilities in representing atoms of an ellipsoid and thermal vibrations). Complete crystallographic data, tables of atomic coordinates, bond lengths and bond angles, temperature factors are not published in the journal but deposited in the Cambridge Structural Data Bank (the registration number of the depositor is indicated in the article).

4.7. According to the requirements of international databases Scopus, Clarivate Analytics, Springer Nature, when evaluating publications in languages ​​other than English, bibliographic lists should be given not only in the original language but also in the Latin alphabet (Roman alphabet). Therefore, authors of articles submitted in Russian and Kazakh should provide a list of references in two versions: one in the original language (References) and the other in the Roman alphabet (References). The latter list is included in the English block, which is located at the end of the article.

If the list contains links to foreign publications, they are completely repeated in the list prepared in References. When citing a Russian-language journal translated abroad, in the Russian-language version of the List of Literature, it is necessary to provide a full reference to the Russian-language version, and in References - to the international one.

The list of sources in References should be written only in the Romanesque Latin alphabet (while it should remain a complete analogue of the List of references, in which the sources were presented in the original language of publication).

To write links to Russian-language sources (and sources in other languages ​​that do not use the Romance alphabet), you should use OFFICIAL TRANSLATION and TRANSLITERATION (see Requirements for translation and transliteration).

References (list of sources in the Roman alphabet) requires the following structure of bibliographic references from Russian-language sources: authors (transliteration), translation of the title of an article or book into English, source title (transliteration - for those publications that do not have an English title established by the editors), output data in digital format, indication of the language of the article in brackets (in Russian or in Kazakh).

Transliteration can be performed on the website

Conventional abbreviations of the names of Russian-language journals and reference books are given in accordance with the abbreviations adopted in the "Abstract Journal of Chemistry":; English-language and other foreign journals - in accordance with the abbreviations recommended by the publishing house "SpringerandBusinessMedia":

The surnames and initials of all authors are given (abbreviations, etc. and et al. are not allowed).

In the Bibliography and References, all works are listed IN ORDER OF CITATION, NOT in alphabetical order.

DOI. In all cases where the cited material has a Digital Object Identifier (doi), it must be indicated at the very end of the source description. To check for DOI of the material, visit or

Existing well-known international standards that are acceptable for handling article content in Scopus do not have standards using the “//” separator; it is necessary to identify what is the title of the article and what is the source. To form a list of references (all references without exception), it is advisable to use one of the accepted foreign bibliographic standards, or to do something similar. An acceptable option is a format similar to Harvard, from which the commas between the author's surname and his initials were removed, the “&” sign in front of the last author was removed, the article title was freed from quotation marks, the year was moved after the journal name, the journal title is in italics, the article title separator and the name of the journal is replaced by a dot:

Author A.A., Author B.B., Author C.C. Title of article. TitleofJounal, 2005, Vol. 10, No. 2.P. 49–53.

For Russian-Language Source:

Author A.A., Author B.B., Author C.C. Title of article. Title of Jounal, 2005, Vol. 10, No. 2, P. 49–53.(InRuss.).

Below are examples of the design of various types of documents, which must be followed by authors in the creation of the Romanesque References list.

After receiving the manuscript and notifying the authors, the editor of the Journal conducts an initial assessment of the compliance of the manuscript with the profile of the journal, relevance and novelty; then it is sent to the reviewer for an initial “blind” review within 14 working days. Further, a second “blind” review by one of the members of the editorial board is used, when the reviewer knows about the author, the author does not know about the reviewer. After the comments made, the manuscript is sent for initial revision (up to 7 calendar days).

After receiving the revised version of the text, it is sent for second review (up to 14 working days). The reviewer gives an opinion on the publication or rejection of the article.

After that, the scientific editor of the journal makes comments, makes corrections and coordinates them with the authors.

After scientific editing, the text is sent to the literary editor. The literary editor checks the compliance of the manuscript format with the Journal Rules. He makes comments, makes corrections and coordinates them with the authors.

Sloppy manuscripts are given lower priority in the publication queue.

Peer reviewers evaluate publications against journal criteria.

  • the degree of interest of the article for the audience of the journal;
  • significance, originality;
  • correctness of the experiment setting and interpretation of the research results;
  • appropriateness of the cited literature;
  • clarity and consistency of presentation;
  • paper design, in accordance with the Rules for Authors.
  • Reviewing is carried out confidentially

Reviewers identify in the review aspects that make the submitted article interesting for the reader of the journal, and point out the shortcomings of the presented results, which do not allow the article to be accepted for publication. The editors reserve the right to shorten the text and make editorial changes, including in the title of the work.

The editor makes the final decision on the acceptance of the manuscript for publication in the journal. Manuscripts not drawn up according to the rules are returned to the authors without consideration. When an article is sent to the authors for revision according to the comments of the editor and reviewers, it is re-reviewed, and the editorial board again decides on the acceptability of the article for publication. The revised manuscript must be returned to the editor within a month.

At the time of submission of the manuscript and during the peer review, other manuscripts describing the same results cannot be simultaneously submitted for consideration to other journals.

The date of acceptance for printing is the date of receipt of the version that meets all the requirements of the Journal. The order of publication is established by the date the article was accepted for publication.

The journal accepts articles containing original, previously unpublished in the press, and not being considered in other periodicals.
