Latest review

First review round: 7.6 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

The editorial process was poor, We did not receive any substantial comment about our manuscript, just say that Objective errors in the methods, applications, or interpretations were identified in this manuscript that prevent further consideration. But it does not show evidence of these methodological flaws, it is only a personal appreciation without scientific foundation
