Resources for chemistry research.

Adding citations to Endnote

ACS Style

ACS Style is a suggested structure and set of guidelines (including citation style) for articles in the field. 

In-text citations

For ACS Style you use superscript numbers within or after cited information

Example: Fluoridated water as well as various fluoride products such as toothpaste provide fluoride ions necessary for remineralization.¹

The number you use will correspond to the citation you are referring to.
