Recently, efforts to reduce stratospheric ozone depletion have been connected with climate
change in the troposphere [Molina et al, 2009].

The full reference must be given in the Reference section at the end of the paper, for example,

Molina, M.; Zaelke D.; Madhava Sarma D.K.; Andersen S.; Ramanathan V.; Kaniaru D.
Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 2009, 87, 2091-2103.

All Figures that you use must be properly labeled with the Figure number, title and reference of where you obtained the figure, for example,

Figure 3. Emissions of carbon dioxide from fossil fuels during the last 200 years [Marland et
al, 2007]

You should reference at least five sources of information for your work. For example, two of these references could be citations of the sources of the problem and solution in the Discussion section. You should include at least one book and one journal article. Use the American Chemical Society (ACS) format for accepted referencing practices:
