Applied Chemistry manuscripts should be restricted to corrosion of materials, environmental chemistry and water quality (pollution studies), phyisco-chemical properties of naturally occurring products, colloid chemistry, nutritional chemistry and metallurgy. Articles must be original and written in English. Short communications will also be published. Only specially invited reviewed articles will be published. JACAR COMMENCED PUBLICATION IN 1994 All manuscripts intended for this journal should be prepared on A4 bond paper and three copies submitted to the Editor-in-Chief, preferably all manuscripts should be prepared using the computer.
