or any compatible format software or as picture in MS Word Version
Manuscripts should be divided into: Title, Authors, Affiliations,
Abstract, Introduction, Results and Discussion, Materials and
Methods, Experimental Section, Conclusion, Acknowledgements, References,
Tables, Figures, Schemes, Captions and Graphical Abstract for
table of contents. All text must be double spaced throughout and
pages numbered. Abbreviations should be defined the first time
they are used, and a list of all abbreviations used should be
provided. Suggestions for reviewers are welcome. The corresponding
author’s full mailing address, FAX numbers, and E-mail address,
may be provided for speedy communications. While entering the
data following points with respect to text, references, and tables
should be taken care of:
a) The running text should be entered with paragraph indent (preferably

d) In the text references should be numbered as superscript in
the order they are cited, being identified in the text by Arabic
a) No full stop marks are needed any where, e.g.
1. Kumar Vineet, Rani Anjana and Soni P L, Recent developments
in galactomannan applications, Trends in Carbohydrate Chemistry
6, 2000, 129.
b) Italics/slanted characters be used for underlined portions,
e.g. Trends in Carbohydrate Research should be set as Trends in
Carbohydrate Research (no underline)
c) After references number uses only TAB and not the variable
space or full stop.
d) No brackets should be used while indicating refrences.
a) Tables should be set using TAB only, not by
SPACE BAR etc.
b) Lines should be used separating columns or rows.
c) Column matter should be entered in continuation.
At the end of the abstract, provide a list of keywords (typically
3–6), i.e., expressions that might serve as search terms
in an electronic search of a database. The keyword list may include
chemical names and multiple-word terms in which the order is inverted.
General terms such as ‘organic synthesis’, ‘NMR’,
‘structure’, etc., are to be avoided. For example:
“Keywords: Galactomannans; Conformational isomers; Polysaccharide
structure etc”. Note that the first word of each Keyword
