The following are some things to remember when citing journal articles using ACS:
(for more, see section 188.8.131.52: Periodicals in the ACS Guide to Scholarly Communication)
Pan, X. J.; Kadla, J. F.; Ehara, K.; Gilke, N.; Saddler, J. N. Organosolv Ethanol Lignin from Hybrid Poplar as a Radical Scavenger: Relationship Between Lignin Structure, Extraction Conditions, and Antioxidant Activity. J. Agric. Food Chem. 2006, 54 (16), 5806-5813. DOI: 10.1021/jf0605392
When citing an article with 10 or more authors, you'll be listing the first 10 authors names and then indicating et al. to represent that there are additional authors.
Jiang, Y.; Wang, Z. X.; Xu, C. X.; Li, W. X.; Li, Y.; Huang, S. S.; Chen, Z. W.; Zhao, B.; Sun, X. L.; Wilkinson, D. P.; et al. Atomic Layer Deposition for Improved Lithiophilicity and Solid Electrolyte Interface Stability During Lithium Plating. Energy Storage Materials 2020, 28, 17-26. DOI: 10.1016/j.ensm.2020.01.019
**This is an example of where the journal title is not available in the CASSI journal abbreviation system, thus it is listed as a full journal title.
With single word journals, you do not need to abbreviate the journal title.
