Notes for ContributorsThe Chinese Journal of Chemical Engineering is the official journal of the Chemical Industry and Engineering Society of China and published by the Chemical Industry Press Co.,Ltd. The aim of the journal is to develop the international exchange of scientific and technical information in the field of chemical engineering.Conditions of Publication It is a condition of publication that manuscripts submitted to CJChE have not been published and will not be submitted or published elsewhere in English or any other language, without the written consent of the publisher. All manuscripts are reviewed by referees and the decision to accept them for publication is made by the editors. Authors are solely responsible for the accuracy and suitability of their contributions.Types of Contribution All manuscripts with significant research results in the areas of chemical engineering and its application are welcome. Four types of papers appear in this journal: Research Papers, Communications, Reviews and Perspectives.All papers will class according to subject: (1) Fluid Dynamics and Transport Phenomena; (2) Separation Science and Engineering; (3) Catalysis, Kinetics and Reaction Engineering; (4) Process Systems Engineering and Process Safety; (5) Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics; (6) Biotechnology and Bioengineering; (7) Energy Science and Technology;(8) Resources and Environmental Technology; (9) Materials and Product Engineering.Manuscript Preparation1. Papers should be written in English.2. The paper should be arranged in the following format: full title; by-line and affiliation with address for correspondence; abstract; keywords; introduction; sections, suitably subdivided under headings(materials and methods, results and discussion, etc.); conclusions; acknowledgements (if necessary); nomenclature; references and appendices (if necessary).Title. Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible.Author names and affiliations. Where the family name may be ambiguous (e.g., a double name), please indicate this clearly. Present the authors' affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, if available, the e-mail address of each author.Corresponding author.Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. Ensure that phone numbers (with country and area code) are provided in addition to the e-mail address and the complete postal address. Contact details must be kept up to date by the corresponding author.Abstract. A concise and factual abstract is required. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. An abstract is often presented separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. For this reason, References should be avoided. Also, non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.Keywords.Please provide a maximum of 6 keywords, using British or American spelling and avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, "and", "of"). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes. At least 3 of these keywords should be chosen from the list of recommended keywords. The list can be found here .http://www.cjche.com.cn/EN/column/column294.shtmlFigures and tables embedded in text.Please ensure the figures and the tables included in the single file are placed next to the relevant text in the manuscript, rather than at the bottom or the top of the file.Figures. The figures should be readable at a size of 8 × 6 cm using a regular screen resolution of 600 dpi. Preferred file types: TIFF, EPS, PDF or MS Office files. Ensure that each illustration has a caption. Supply captions separately, not attached to the figure. A caption should comprise a brief title (not on the figure itself) and a description of the illustration. Keep text in the illustrations themselves to a minimum but explain all symbols and abbreviations used.Tables. Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place footnotes to tables below the table body and indicate them with superscript lowercase letters. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.Math formulae. Present simple formulae in the line of normal text where possible and use the solidus (/) instead of a horizontal line for small fractional terms, e.g., X/Y. In principle, variables are to be presented in italics. Powers of e are often more conveniently denoted by exp. Number consecutively any equations that have to be displayed separately from the text (if referred to explicitly in the text).3. Provide a graphic abstract on the last page of the submitted manuscript. It should capture reader’s attention and give the reader a quick visual impression of the essence of the manuscript.4. Follow internationally accepted rules and conventions: use the international system of units (SI). If other units are mentioned, please give their equivalent in SI.5. Manuscripts should be typed in single-column format with wide margins on one side of A4 (210 mm×297 mm) paper. A font size of 12 pt or 10 pt is required.6. No conclusion for Research Notes, but abstract and keywords are necessary.7. References should be numbered in the order of appearance. The following are examples of different types of references.(1) S.M. Kresta, Characterization, measurement and prediction of the turbulent flow in stirred tanks, Ph. D. Thesis, McMaster Univ., Canada，1991.(2) Q.Yu, J.T. Matheickal, P. Yin, P. Kaewsarn, Heavy metal uptake capacities of biomass: A comparison, Proceedings of Chemeca’98, Port Douglas, Australia，1998.(3) J.X.

Osaki, Multistage vortex pump, Japan Pat., 62186095 (1986).(6) M. Wang, C. Saricks, D. Santini, Effects of fuel ethanol use on fuel-cycle energy and greenhouse gas emissions, USDOE Argonne National Laboratory, Center for Transportation Research, ANL/ESD-38, 1999[2010-06-24], http://www.transportation.anl.gov/pdfs/TA/58.pdf.(Title of journal, but not of book, should be abbreviated.)8. Formatting requirements(1) Please only capitalize the first letter of the first word for the article title, except the capitalized letters in proper nouns, such as CO2, H2O, China, etc. For example:CO2 leakage identification in geosequestration based on real time correlation analysis between atmospheric O2 and CO2(2) The Latin words should be italic, for example: versus, et al., e.g. When using the abbreviation of the words, the period cannot be omitted excepted at the end of the sentence.(3) When the items in tables need to be explained, we use a pair of ①, ②, ③…* etc., to make notes under the tables to associate the items with their meaning/definition.(4) Please put the symbols in tables instead of putting the physical quantities themselves in tables, and separate the symbols and their units by slash “/” instead of putting their units in parentheses “( )”.(5) The symbols are always italic; such as “p” for pressure, “c” for concentration, “T” for temperature, “S” for area, and the vectors, tensors, matrixes must be italic and boldfaced.(6) The subscripts should not be italic except the following cases:① When subscripts represent numbers and variables, they must be italic. Such as: Si, i=1,2,3,…, then “i” should be italic.② When subscripts represent physical quantities, they must be italic. Such as: isobaric heat capacity “cp”, the subscript “p” must be italic.③ In order to distinguish “l” (for liquid) from “1” (for one), the “l” (for liquid) should be italic.(7) One symbol can only represent one physical quantity,and vice versa one physical quantity can only be represented by one symbol.(8) We write the units in the form of exponent, such as: kg·cm-2.① No matter how long the units are, they are always separated by “?”, not by parentheses, such as: g·K-1·m-1.② When used for the liter, “L” should be capitalized. But when used for “milliliter”, “microliter” or “mole”, it should be lower case as “ml”, “μl” and “mol”.(9) Generally, all the symbols used in the article should bealphabetized in the “NOMENCLATURE” to give the definitions and the units for them. Please put the English letters first, then the Greek letters and the numbers the last. When the same letters used in the article, please put the capitalized one first then the lower cased one.(10) Only in the NOMENCLATURE, the units are separated from their definitions by a comma “,”.
