Here's an example of American Chemical Society style for a basic reference list format for a journal article:

Caruso, R. A.; Susha, A.; Caruso, F. Multilayered Titania, Silica, and Laponite Nanoparticle Coatings on Polystyrene Colloidal
     Templates and Resulting Inorganic Hollow Spheres. Chem. Mater. 2001, 13, 400–409.

For more information use the link to access the ACS Guide to Scholarly Communication on or off campus.
