Here are some approaches and sources for your research project.

JACS Citation Style

Below is the general format for citing a JOURNAL ARTICLE in the Journal of American Chemical Society (JACS) citation style:

Last name, Initials; Last name, Initials (etc. for all authors). Article title. Journal title abbreviation in italics publication year in bold, volume number in italics, page numbers, first-last.
Cherian, T.; Narayana, B.  A new spectrophotometric method for the determination of arsenic in environmental and biological samples.  Anal. Lett. 2005, 38, 2207-2216.

Use CASSI abbreviations for journal titles.  You can look them up at CAS's Source Index Tool, CASSI.
