ACS Style Guide
The ACS Style, from the American Chemical Society, is the most prevalent citation style for chemical publications. For journal articles (the most common format), citations should take this form:
Author, A. A; Author, B. B; Author, C. C. Title of Article. Journal Abbreviation (italics)[Online if online] Year (boldface), Volume (italics), Pagination.
Borman, S. Protein Sequencing For The Masses. Chem. Eng. News [Online] 2004, 82, pp 22-23.
Slunt, K. M.; Giancarlo, L. C. Student-Centered Learning: A Comparison of Two Different Methods of Instruction. J. Chem. Educ. 2004, 81, pp 985-988.
These web-based overviews show many examples using the ACS Style.
