Reviewer Comments for USAM 2005.6
Title of Paper: ***
Authors: ***
Ref. No. USAM2005.6
I appreciate the progress and effort that the authors have made. I note some significant progress in
this revised article. By replacing "new" with the word of "simple", I take back my argument about
the novelty of the method in making soft metal nanoparticles, because it is the first article that
report to pulverizing Sn metal into the size as small as 50 nm. Maybe the word "facile" is more
I am still having trouble understanding the mechanism of the formation of Sn nanoparticle
proposed by the author. Because the hardness of Sn is 1.5 in mineralogical scale, where Mg and
Zn have 2.5 (Samsonov, G.V. "Handbook of the Physicochemical Properties of the Elements"
IFI/Plenum, 1968, pp. 432), it is not surprising that Sn can be pulverizing into small particles
under high-intensity of ultrasound. What I have trouble with is that the surface area should not be
large enough to have the authors worried about in reducing the surface energy of particles with
aggregation (I calculated the surface area of Sn particles at 50 nm is c.a. 12 m2/g). I really don't
think the oxide coating and solvent molecules would depress the aggregation because I don't think
there would be aggregation occurring.
Overall, it is my opinion that the article should be published if the authors can clarify the question
about the mechanism of aggregation.
Please note that the references are not uniform in format from No 15 down.

Reviewers' comments:
Reviewer #1: Major Revision
This paper reports on the development of a stripping voltammetry procedure for the determination
of thallium and cadmium in water using a modified glassy carbon electrode with a
Langmuir-Blodgett film of p-allylcalix[4]arene coating.
The study is well planned and performed. Additionally, the topic that it covers is interesting;
consequently, I feel that the paper merits publication in ACA, but with some revision. Following
are some aspects for the authors to consider:
1 The characterization of Langmuir monolayers is made as usual through the measurement of the
surface pressure versus area isotherms. Some characteristics of isotherms should be offered, i.e.,
the limiting area per molecule (it seems to be around 0.8 nm2/molecule from Figure 2) and the
collapse pressure. Additionally, more information on LB film preparation should be included in
2.3 section (p. 5) related to the solutions used and their concentrations.
2 All reagents used for experimental work and the suppliers should be indicated in Section 2.2
(p.2), not only for the Tl2SO4 reagent.
3 The lifetime of the proposed electrode must be discussed with experimental data.
4 The central idea of this study is the development of a new non-mercury electrode for the
stripping analysis of metals. This means, additionally, the correct study of potential interferent
species to compare with conventional electrodes. The study of interferents must be improved by
including more ions such as Pb(II), Bi(III), Ni(II) or Cu(II) and giving results in a new table.
5 The precision of the proposed procedure must be studied.
6 The applicability of procedure to drinking water is doubtful taking into account the detection
limit found (>1 mg.L-1) and the natural level of analytes in waters. In fact, the application that the
authors offer is to spiked clean water (lake water and tap water). Did the authors consider
potential application to polluted water?
7 As the authors propose the simultaneous determination of Tl and Cd and since Figure 4
suggests some overlapping of stripping g*L-1 level, it seems necessary ?voltamograms for both
metals at a 150 to study the resolution of both signals in the lab, indicating the concentration
range for both metals in which resolution is possible.
8 The heading of Table 1 indicates recovery and precision for the tap and lake water analyzed,
but the table does not include data for precision.
9 The whole manuscript should be revised for some typewriting errors and the English should be
10 In brief, I think that the idea is interesting but the authors need to improve some aspects of
their work as indicated above n order to demonstrate its real feasibility.
Reviewer #2: Minor Revision
This is an interesting paper focusing on the use of LB films of calix[4]arenes for the determination
of thallium and cadmium.
Its publication can be recommended, after considering the following points:
1) Why are they assuming that the calix[4]arenes are interacting with the glassy carbon electrode
through the phenolic groups, rather than through the hydrophobic aromatic allyl groups? This
possibility would not be preferred using the LB technique?
2) The binding of the metal ions would not be more favorable at the lower rim OH groups?
3) Spectroscopic, and microscopy (SPM, TEM) investigation of the LB-Tl, Cd surfaces would be
very informative in this case.
4) Considering that only one layer has been deposited, and the evidence provided by the authors
that it remains permeable to large ions, such as ferrocyanide, how one can be sure that the metal
deposition is not occurring at the surface holes? Otherwise, how a non conducting layer would
mediate electron transfer in the reduction/stripping process?
5) A very interesting result would be the comparison between the behavior of the LB films of the
t-butyl and allyl calix[4]arenes.
Language revision will be necessary.
Following are our response about reviewers’ comment to our manuscript No ***-***-00**0:
1 The following sentence was additional among the text in order to contribute more information of
LB film.
‘The limiting area and collapsing pressure of p-allylcalix[4]arene is 0.75 nm2 per molecule and
34mNm respectively on pure water ‘ was provided in section 3.1.
‘Measurement of π-A isotherms and preparation of LB monolayer were performed with JML-04
LB trough (Shanghai Zhongchen Company, P R China). The spreading solutions were prepared by
dissolving about 1-2 mg of the compound in 10 ml of dichloromethane. All spreading solutions
were kept at 5 °C and renewed every 2 weeks.’ was provided in section 2.3.
2 CdCl2 and other chemicals were purchased from local company as analytical reagents and used
without further purification. Therefore, this sentence will be appeared in the text.
3 The response of AllylCA-GCE did not change remarkably after two months. The lifetime of
proposed electrode should be longer. We add the first sentence in our revision.
4 In order to make clear, one table about interferences will be appeared in our revision.
5 The precision of proposed procedure were given in the table 2.
6 We consider that this electrode can detect metal ion of polluted water. Unfortunately,suitable
sullage sample was not found in our area.
7 We want to ensure they won’t interfere with each other. It seems to the peak of thallium and
cadmium could not be separated entirely for partly overlapping in Fig 4 A.
8 We calculate relative standard deviation of method and provided it in table 2.
9 we correct some typewriting errors which were appeared in our manuscript.
10 The molecular orientation can be controlled easily using LB technique. The type Z LB film
means hydrophilic group interact with glassy carbon electrode.
11 We have done experiment on electrode modified with calixarene(pasted on the surface of GC
electrode), that is, molecular orientation was arranged freely. The response decrease sharply. We
suppose it can due to decreasing of amount of allyl group on the same area. Therefore, we
supposed that would not happened
12 The spectroscopic or microscopy investigation is unnecessary base on the above reason.
13 Metal can be deposited on the surface hole. However, the response of bare electrode is much
less than that of AllylCA-GCE. We suppose this can be neglected.
14 The ferrocyanide is the larger ion, and it can not permeate the calixarene cavity and exchange
electron with electrode. However, the supporting electrolyte can permeate the cavity freely.
15 The electrode modified with LB film of p-tert-butylcalix[4]arene cannot recognize thallium and
cadmium at all.
16 We apologized for our poor English. We will try to improve it in revision.
17 In order to highlight the change what we have done, the color of text changed will become red.

Dear Editor:
This was my article for your magazine“Preparation and Structure Characterization of Long Single
Crystalline CuO Nanoribbons” In this communication, we have developed a novel simple and
convenient route to the abundant synthesis of long CuO nanoribbons on conducting Aluminium
substrate. TEM and XRD studies indicated that these CuO nanoribbons were single crystal with
single crystalline plane of monoclinic {111}. The nanoribbons obtained are about several hundreds
nanometers in width, from tens to one hundred nanometers in thickness and their length can be up
to one hundred microns. Because these CuO nanoribbons not only are perfect single crystalline
but also are single crystalline plane, they can be expected to have special properties and purpose,
such as nanoelectronic device and heterogeneous catalyst etc. In addition, the novel method seems
can also be used to prepare 1D nanostructures of other metallic oxides.

Dear editors:
I am a Dr of **** University in China. Now I will submit my manuscript entitled “Fabrication of
Copolymer(core)-Palladium(shell) Composite Microspheres and Their Successful Application to
the Solvent-Free Heck Reactions” to Chemical Engineering Science, and none of the work has
been published or under consideration for publication elsewhere. This manuscript presents an
in-suit synthetic method for the preparation of Poly (St-co-MAA)(core)-Pd(shell) composite
microspheres with dense Pd shells coated on their surface. The wall thickness could be controlled
in the range of 30-50nm by this coating process. The composite spheres showed very good
catalytic activities in Heck coupling reactions and can be reused many times without loss of its
catalytic activities in the absence of organic solvent This method will attract great interest in the
preparation of other copolymer(core)-metal(shell) nanomaterials. So, I think this manuscript is
suitable for it. I would be very happy if I can get your reply as soon as possible.
If there are any questions, please contact with me.

Dear Professor ***:
Thank you for your invitation. My colleagues and I will consider whether we have anything
appropriate to present and will come to a decision within the next few days.
The ACS web site is devoid of any information on the symposium you mention, and the
description in your letter is not very clear. It would appear that you are attempting to interest the
ACS in a new area, and I hope you succeed. However, it would help in my decision if you could
be a bit clearer. What is expected from me? Is it something new or a review of the previous
findings of my group?
In addition, attending this meeting was not something I planned on. This means that my limited
budget will not stand the extra strain. Therefore, it would help if I knew of any possibilities to
defray participation costs.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Subject: Message for ****l
A little earlier, I received an email message from your office rejecting the manuscript I submitted
as SUSC_edwardsacher_20020322/1, editorial reference number SS 02192. Needless to say, I was
surprised at not being given the opportunity to rebut. Now that I have read the referees' comments,
I am doubly surprised.
Consider Referee A. His sole disagreement, without offering reasons to the contrary, is that the
phenomena we find are attributed to several different free radicals formed on bond breaking. He
argues that stable free radicals in graphite exist only in vacancies and at surfaces. We agree. Where
we appear to disagree is whether or not the breaking of a C-C bond creates a vacancy: his point of
view, as stated in his comment, is that such free radicals rejoin to reform bonds. Unfortunately,
literature data going back many decades prove him wrong.
I presume that Referee A is from the group that wrote reference 21 in the manuscript since they
note that one of their four attributions is given incorrectly in the manuscript. I thank him for
catching it; it will be corrected in the next version.
Now, consider Referee B. Of his list of major points, the first asks for clearer referencing, the next
four ask that residuals and error bars be included in several plots, the sixth (erroneously numbered
5) asks for a clarification in a figure and the last questions the applicability of a reference.
While Referee A may not like our free radical formation mechanism, neither he nor Referee B
(who doesn't mention it at all) has refuted it or offered evidence as to why it may not be so. It is
interesting to note that we, the authors, have, in fact done so in the middle of p. 12 of our
manuscript, where we offer several interesting opposing views.
Furthermore, our evidence for the presence of free radicals is not questioned, nor is our N
hybridization scheme ( which has never appeared in previous papers on the subject). Also not
discussed are the supporting results of the Raman and TOF-SIMS studies. Based on all this, and
more I will not spend time discussing, we find it difficult to understand how you could possibly
reject the manuscript without the opportunity to revise it.
Could you explain your decision? I look forward to hearing from you.
Dear Dr. ***,
Thank you for your message below. I understand your concern.
I was most troubled by the incorrect listings in Table I of all four components from Reference
21. Your letter says that the error was only in one of the four, but they all look different to me and
apparently to the referee. There were also a number of other features which seemed to be easily
found errors that gave me great concern not by the importance of any single error but rather by
their frequency and the fact that they should really have been caught by the authors before
Thank you for responding so quickly. I have read your comment and compared it with the
comments of the referees. I must disagree with your contention that all four of the attributions
taken from reference 21 are in error. In fact, if you glance at reference 21, pages 325-327, you will
find their discussion of the attributions of others to the N1s peaks, and their assessments of those
attributions. They are unclear as to their own view and never state it clearly; we tried to give what
we thought it was, which is probably why Referee A made his comment. However, we call your
attention to the first sentence of the last paragraph of the discussion, which begins with the words,
"While we cannot definitely assign the N1s peaks .....". If, indeed, Referee A is a member of the
team that wrote reference 21, the ideas expressed in his comment must have originated later. I
submit that this is not a cause for rejection of the manuscript.
Further, the comments of Referee B do not concern easily found errors; rather, they concern the
addition of residuals and error bars, whose purpose is to enhance and clarify our manuscript.
Certainly, this is typical of requests made for revision.
As I noted in yesterday's letter, none of this warrants rejection. Indeed, neither of the referees
mentioned it. Therefore, I request your permission to submit a revised manuscript. Could you tell
me how to do this?
Many thanks.
Suggestions and comments:
Paper gives a new assignment for the C1s and N1s XPS components of the CNx thin layer. The
authors discuss it from a view point of sp and sp2 hybridization in the compound. Although I
cannot believe their conclusion for the solid, reader will judge whether it is reasonable or not.
Thus the paper should be published in order to open the discussion. I feel, however, there are too
many figures in the paper. The Residual plots in Fig. 2a and 2b are unnecessary at least. In the
manuscript obtained by down loading the PDF file, there are many mistypes, probably occurred in
the transfer process.
In the manuscript, 1. many hyphens or minus signals, and power components are dropped from the
manuscript. 2. ri ented ? oriented ( in Abstract, page 1) 3. id ? did (page 2, line 18) 4. neighbor s ?

Surface Science paper by: D.-Q. Yang, E. Sacher, ‘A spectroscopic study of CNx formation by the
keVN2+…. (SS02192)
Authors have plot residuals in Figure 2a, as it has been asked. However the residuals clearly show
peaks instead of being straight line (the line of residual has wiggles – see top of Fig. 2a).
This indicates that the peak fitting was not done correctly. To get the straight line the number of
peaks or/and their positions and widths need to be determined correctly. Introduction of a new
peak means that a new chemical component is present and when a new position of the peak is
introduced it means that a different chemical component is present (this mean that a different
interpretation of data have to be done to current one in the paper). Therefore, since all analysis and
interpretation of the data in this paper relay on this fitting procedure - I do not believe to current
interpretation of the data given in this paper.
In my opinion much better analysis of data is needed and/or the data needs to be taken with a
better resolution so that peaks in C1s core level are resolved before it is worth publishing in Surf.
Dear Professor Campbell:
I submit the revised manuscript, “A spectroscopic study of CNx formation by the keV N2+
irradiation of highly oriented pyrolytic graphite surfaces”, as well as nine revised figures. The
revision was carried out as a result of the comments of the two reviewers. Detailed comments
Referee A
As the reviewer notes, we do, indeed, attribute all the implanted N components to free radicals. As
we noted, the free radicals are initially produced on bond cleavage by the irradiating beam., as we
have previously shown. The N can only react with these chain end fragments, retaining, at least to
some extent, the free radical character of the original fragments. Since the production of free
radicals by hemolytic scission has been known for many decades, we see no reason to defend this
The reviewer’s next point has to do with the N1s XPS attributions used in the paper by Kusunoki
et al. When one reads reference 21, pages 325-327, one finds their discussion of the attributions of
others to the N1s peaks, and their assessments of those attributions. They are unclear as to their
own view and never state it clearly; we tried to give what we thought it was, which is probably
why Referee A made his comment. However, we call your attention to the first sentence of the last
paragraph of the Discussion, which begins with the words, "While we cannot definitely assign the
N1s peaks .....". If, indeed, Referee A is a member of the team that wrote reference 21, the ideas
expressed in his comment must have originated later. For this reason, we have changed our
attributions in the text, as well as in Table I, to agree with those of the reviewer, and note its
subsequent communication.
Referee B
Major point 1: The difficulty here appears to be with the phraseology. What we meant was that the
attributions from many sources contradict each other; since they cannot all be correct, many of the
attributions are obviously in error. We have reworded this to make it clearer.
Major point 2: The reviewer asks to see residuals. This is easy to do, since we always use residuals
in our peak fitting. Thus, we have replaced the figures with those showing residuals. Further, we
have added a paragraph to the Experimental section, to indicate the philosophy used in employing
the residuals. This was done to avoid any confusion with the criteria employed.
Major point 3: The reviewer is concerned with the use of a straight line to represent the data in Fig
5a, and wishes to see error bars. So as not to confuse the data, we show error bars for the first
points of each plot in the figure. Further, we point out the well-known problem encountered on
angle resolution: the circle being detected at a perpendicular take-off angle becomes an ellipse as
the angle approaches grazing incidence, causing intensity errors. We note that, until an angle of
60° degrees from the perpendicular, the data are well represented by a straight, horizontal line, and
we illustrate this for the uppermost of the plots.
Major point 4: We do not exactly understand the overall thrust of this point, since several different
ones are being made concerning Fig. 4a. We have added error bars to the first points, so as not to
confuse and overlap the data. In addition, the reviewer asks for rescaling, to more clearly see C3
and C4. While we believe that such rescaling is unnecessary, and C3 and C4 are already clearly
seen, we actually tried to do this. We tried, and decided against, logarithmic rescaling of the
ordinate because the plots were distorted and the upper plots were compressed. We tried, and
decided against, another figure for the lower plots because we already have fifteen figures.
Major point 5 (called point 4 by the reviewer): The reviewer asks for error bars. They have been
added to the first points of Figs. 4b and 6. We have added them to all the points of Fig. 4c because
of the uncertainty in establishing the precision of the abscissa.
Major point 6 (called point 5 by the reviewer): The reviewer does not see any evidence for the
shift of the highest peak intensity of the N1s spectrum in Fig. 1b. We cannot understand this
request. Fig. 1b clearly shows that, on irradiation, the highest peak shifts from the one near 400.5
eV to the one near 399 eV. This is reworded to make it clearer.
Major point 7 (called point 6): The reviewer notes that the original reference [24] concerns the
Au-N bond and not the C-N bond. He is absolutely correct. We intentionally used this reference
since it deals with the type of analysis we were doing on nitride formation, and we thought the
reader would find it helpful to be aware of this. However, we understand the reviewer’s point: it
has been replaced with another reference, on the C-N bond.
All the minor points, some caused by problems with Word, as we notified you a few days after our
initial submission, have been corrected. We thank the reviewer for noting them.
We hope that the revision is acceptable.

and I are of the opinion that it does not remotely reach the standards we have come to expect from
JAP. We believe that this is due to the fact that the reviewer was poorly chosen, and has a
difficulty understanding the thrust of the manuscript. We offer the following rebuttal of his review.
In his first point, the reviewer offers his personal opinion that the penetration of oxygen into the
porous silicon determines the oxidation kinetics. He appears to assume that we are proposing this;
we are not, as the references clearly show. This was proposed, and accepted, long before. We
simply confirm it with correlations, and use them to make predictions.
In his second point, the reviewer says that we cannot do what we have, in fact, done: use XPS to
quantify the oxidation. Instead, he suggests that we use HF etching of the surface. However,
besides the fact that etching is inherently less accurate than XPS, the etching of porous material is
fraught with problems: in particular, the fact that water does not wet the silicon means that air in
the pores will prevent the water from entering, thus giving incorrect results.
In his third point, the reviewer suggests that we leave out all reference to photoluminescence. With
this request, he indicates that he has not understood the thrust of the paper: it is part of a series, as
indicated in the Introduction, on the source of the photoluminescence in oxidizing porous silicon.
Why should we want to remove any reference as to why we did the experiment?
In his fourth point, the reviewer asks whether silicon oxidation is good or bad. How does one
answer that? We are studying silicon oxidation, not because it is good or bad, but because we wish
to understand the phenomenon and its bearing on photoluminescence.
In his fifth point, the reviewer indicates that atmospheric oxidation depends on the atmospheric
conditions and is, therefore, not necessarily reproducible. This is true enough, and has been
understood for many years. That is why the accepted procedure is to quote the atmospheric
conditions during the experiment in the Experimental Section, as we have done.
In summary, the review of our manuscript is below the level of JAP, and we hope that you will be
able to either accept our rebuttal as is, or obtain another review. The final manuscript we will send
will also contain the corrections of the mechanical deficiencies noted.
Please accept my best wishes.
Sincerely yours,
B. 主编觉得反驳意见合适,同意找另一组评委. 下面新评委们的部分
I have been asked to perform a two-fold task: to see whether the first reviewer's comments are
appropriate and, if not then, to offer my opinion of this research.
The previous Reviewer: It is unfortunately terribly evident that the previous reviewer has not the
slightest idea what the research performed here aims to accomplish. This is most clearly seen in
his 4th comment: "The reader do not understand: is it bad or good that Si is oxidized?" This
sentence shows two things. The first is, as claimed by me, is that the authors write in their
abstract:" A model has been developed to describe the room air oxidation process..." A model is
not a judgment of good and evil, nor should it be. The second item is that the first reviewer neither
knows how to read or to write American English. The first reviewer, however eminent he/she may
otherwise be, is linguistically disqualified for adequate review. I must this review this MS. de
The article: The authors write (page 3): “ It is our purpose to understand how porosity affects the
air oxidation of nanoporous Si…”. This seems to me to be an entirely worthwhile goal; the
problem for me is whether this project has been adequately performed and reported. As things
stand at the moment, it appears to me that answer is NO, although this might be remedied.
C. 我们根据他的意见进行了必要的修改,并解释了他的一些疑问,下面是修改后的Letter.
Dear Dr. ****:
I submit a revised version of Ms. #JR88-2008. The revisions were carried out according to the
suggestions of the last reviewer.
We feel it necessary to thank this reviewer for his most perceptive review. His comments clearly
bore on the subject of the manuscript, as opposed to those of the previous reviewer; we also thank
you for your willingness to send the manuscript to this second reviewer.
In reading the reviewer’s comments, several things became quite obvious. We had not made it
clear that the manuscript was one of a series on the investigation of the cause of
photoluminescence in nanoporous silicon, and we had not given enough information on our
previous results.
With the recent publication of our IR work in the Journal of Applied Physics, we were now in a
position to reference these results. It is now clear that both oxygen and water vapor oxidize the
porous silicon, with similar rates due to their reaction with silicon free radicals. Reference can
thus be made to the oxidation mechanism, as well as to our previous work justifying the use of the
Deal-Grove mechanism.
Without considering the reviewer’s points individually, we believe that we have responded to each
one. We have, for example, included an SEM photomicrograph of a porous sample, although this
was difficult due to the fact that these insulators charge. AFM photomicrographs were impossible
to obtain due to the high surface roughness of our samples.
We have made the mechanical corrections to the figures, as requested. Concerning the previous
Figure 2b, we have removed the text concerning oxidation time prediction, and have clarified our
need for the figure.
We hope that these changes lead to the acceptance of the manuscript, and look forward to hearing
from you.
Please accept my best wishes for the new year.
Sincerely yours,

Comment to Author:
1. The introduction (part 1) explains quite well why the researchers are interesting to alkene
isomerization which is very important to industry and organic synthesis.
2. In the second part (Results and discussion) author picked out the most effective catalyst
RuHCl(PPh3)3 which was synthesized in different method ,and a detailed description is given for
the catalytic results of different condition .It is attractive that the performance on 1-octadecene
isomerization by RuHCl(PPh3)3(s) presented high activity, thermal stability and the solvent-free
system . In the third part (Conclusion) a lengthy discussion follows to explain.
3. The work is of interest, but I feel that the paper could be better revised as follows:
(a)Describe the Mechanism of RuHCl (PPh3)3(s) catalyzed olefin isomerization in full detail
(section 2.5).in Figure 3, the mechanism should be expressed what it meant correctly.
(b) Figures 1 and 2 are necessary to be displayed clearly, and page number should be needed.
(c)Section 2.3 starts off well. This entire section seems very important. This section should form
the bulk of the discussion I would appreciate further studies have been carried out with
1-octadecene isomerization catalyzed by the complex RuHCl(PPh3)3(s) without solvent and
Final comment: This paper would be much better in quality when the mechanism of the
isomerization and 1-octadecene isomerization in the above work are detailed in this publication.

Dear ***,
Thank you for your email from 27-Feb-2006. We acknowledge the receipt of your submission to
the *****. Your files with the reserved ccdc no. ***** are already pre-revised. In the moment,
they cannot be formated as a manuscript. Why see at the end of this email!
We aim at informing you about the referee's comments in less than 4 weeks.
At the end of the process, for each accepted ***** publication the authors are asked to pay *****.
(NEW PAPER CHARGE since 2006!!!) The authors will receive an INVOICE to be cancelled in
30 days. The payment includes 30 offprints.Do you agree with that?
Please, if possible use always the registration no. as subject in the correspondence to us! Thank
Best regards,
There are some errors in the CIF
i) In the preparation, only potassium salts were used as input, but a sodium salt was obtained?!
Please correct!
ii) There are no H atoms in the CIF, but it is written incorrectly:
"all the hydrogen atoms of the ligands were placed in geometrically calculated positions, and
included in the final refinement in the riding model approximation" Please, add a correct statement
about the H atom treatment to Experimental details!
iii) The number of water molecules per unit cell should be larger. If you have determined the water
contents by chemical or DTA/DTG measurement, add the corresponding results to the Exp. details!
If not, please note: The displacement parameters of some O atoms are too small for water
molecules which are only hydrogen bonded to water molecules and additionally disordered. O
atoms which have an occupancy factor of 0.5 and a complete
tetrahedral environment with O...O distances of about 3 Angstrom should have sof = 1. Disordered
O atoms can have sofs. smaller than 1, 0.5 for
an atom with one neighbored O atoms plus d(O...O) < 2.5 and 0.25 for an atom with 3 other
neighbored O atoms and d(O...O) < 2.5. Please check!
Please send a new CIF! Thank you
Dear *****,
Please, send the figures in original ps or hgl format!
Thank you
Best regards,
Dear Editor,
Thanks for your reply for time and patient. We have send the figures in hgl format many times. We
want to know do you have received it? And we look forward to getting a message from you on
edge. Please contact us, if you have any question.
Thanks a lot.
Kind regards
Thank you for the submission of the figures. The manuscript is prepared and sent to the
referee. Be prepared, that there are open questions
with your paper (chemical composition not determined!). Sorry for being late. I was absent for
four days.
Best regards,
Dear *****,
Thank you for your email!
Please, would you check following statements: The chemical compound, you have studied, is the
same as investigated by *****! The lattice parameters are nearly the same. *****made a
chemical analysis! And you? **** have found ** sodium cations from which only three have
appropriate Uani values. You have found exactly these three Na ions. You have assigned the
remaining charges to hydrogenium ions, because you could not find the other cations. But can the
latter Na ions not be disordered? Yes, they can do that! One example is your O21/O24. These two
positions seem
to represent one disordered Na ion. Why? They have, under considering of suitable Ueq values,
too short distance to each other, and then, too much electrons for one O atom. Additinally, they
have distances of 2.1... 2.5 ?to next O atoms, which is typical for Na-O bond lengths and not
typical for O...O distances of hydrogen bonds.
Since your measurement seems to be more accurate than that of *****, a publication of you data
as refinement of the Na~6~-compound is probably sensefull. Please, check it!
If you need any help to find the other Na atoms, you can send us the hkl file!
Best regards,
Dear *****,
Thanks for your reply for time and patient. The quality of our crystal data is obviously better than
ref.******. We make a contrast and show similarity and difference between the title compound
and that from the ref.******. We have amended it according to your suggestion, and then we send
it again by attachment. Please contact us via e-mail:***@***, if you have any question. Thanks a

Dear *****,
Would you please check the attached files! The resulting polyhedra make sense after resolution of
the disordered positions into two preferred sites. The current water contents per formula is **

I am very glad to receive your E-Mail about the proof of article: ×××××××××,and I have also
received the attachments named as"the prof of the article"and "Author Query Form".Thank you
very much for your hard work and timely reply.But before I finish my revision,I have some
questions to ask:
1,Because my partner is in Beijing now,so I want to wait for him to finish the revision,this work
will be finished by the next weekend at the latest.I wonder if I can do it like this.
2,I want to add a second author and make ×××the third author ,××× has agreed to this change,but I
am not sure if the change is allowed by the Journal.
3,I hope I can add a Foundation name,because during this work ,I has been helped by right of this
Foundation,but I forgot to wrote it.I also wonder if I can do it.
4,In the Author Query Form,I know the authors' photos and biographies are required by this
journal.I want to know if we need all authors' photos and biographies,and how can I give your our
Thank you very much for your consideration.
Sincerely Yours,×××
Dear ×××:
Just to answer your concerns:
1) Firstly, there is no problem waiting to send in your corrections until you and your partner have
both finished your revisions. You will probably receive reminder e-mails as these are automated
and I can't stop them, but just ignore these and send in the corrections when you have both
2) I will contact the editor to request the addition of an author, it should not be a problem.
3) Yes add the Founadtion name - include this with the corrections.
4) Biographies & photos are ideally required, but I would never force an author to include if they
would prefer not too. In terms of the photos if you would like to submit then the ideal way is a
jpeg or tif file if you have access to a digital camera, or even a phone camera. Or if you have
printed photos would you have access to a scanner? If it is difficult to get photos it is acceptable to
leave them out - perhaps just have a short biography for each author. Whatever you decide please
return the material with the corrections attached to the e-mail.
I hope this helps - don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other queries or concerns.
Kindest regards,******
Dear Editor:
I am sorry to disturb you again for my paper. My article"×××"has been accepted by the ×××in Feb
16, 2006.The Manuscript Number is ×××.The editor told me that I should revise my paper .At that
time,I had two questions: First,how long can we revise the article? Second,when we finish the
revision,how could I give the paper to you? But I have not receive the reply yet. Because my
partner and I are revising the paper,I am afraid of being late.So I have to write a letter to
you.Another question is,does the "correction" mean "revised article" in English? Thank you very
much for your consideration.
Sincerely Yours,
Mr. ×××
Dear ××:
According to our system your paper was accepted on the 16th February and it is now listed in our
publication tracking system under the reference ××. You should have received correspondence
from Elsevier with regard to this.
In answer to your questions, if you have been asked to revise your paper by the editor, a Revise
decision should then be registered by the editor via the online system. You will then be able to
submit your revised paper once again via the system as a 'Submit Revision' link would be made
available to you.
The word 'Correction' refers to a change that has to be made. The Editor may want you to correct
an error within the paper or to make a change.
If you have any queries please feel free to contact me.
Yours sincerely
Dear Editor:
Thank you very much for your timely reply! I am sorry,I didn't give your completed information
about my paper.I have received the Reference for my article:×××for sure.I also have received the
mail from Mr××× with two attachments:TRANSFER OF COPYRIGHT FORM and OFFPRINTS
ORDER FORM.Thank you very much!
But I am not sure if the Editor-in-Chief of ×××asked me to revise the paper.On the one hand,An
E-mail from the Editor-in-Chief gave the Comments from the Editors and Reviewers in follows:
This is a very good paper, related work has to be better explained. Also need to discuss the
relationship to standards. For example, what are the standards currently existing and what
standards do we need., Also the authors could make the paper more concise. If these comments are
addressed then the paper can be published in the journal.
In my opinion,according to the Comments from the Editors and Reviewers,I should revise my
paper.On the other hand,in the on-line system,my paper is on "Submissions with a Decision",so I
can't submit my paper once again via the system .
So in my previous mail to you,I asked the second question.I want to know if I need to revise my
paper.If I needn't, what should I do to reply the Comments from the Editors and Reviewers?
Thank you very much for your consideration.
Have a nice weekend!!!
Sincerely Yours,
Mr. ×××
