# [OS X TeX] BiBTeX, "achemso" and {book}

Hi,

I'm using TeXShop to compile LaTeX code on my G4 iBook.  I initially
posted my query on apfelwiki.de (thread "achemso style bibliography
in book" and was pointed towards this emailing list.

The problem is regarding the package "achemso"  (a bibliography style
to produce referencing in the style of The American Chemical
Society), and the way that it interacts with the "\documentclass
{book}".  I have successfully used this style with {article}, however
when switching to {book} (much more desirable in order to write my
thesis), the bibliography ceases to be titled properly:  The
references all function properly and are listed at the end of the
document in the normal way, it is just that the bibliography is not
titled - normally there would be a heading "References", but now
there is none.

The console displays the following error when trying to compile:

Undefined control sequence.
<argument> \refname
\@mkboth {\MakeUppercase \refname }
{\MakeUppercase \refn...
l.2 \begin{thebibliography}{1}

?

As I stated on the website posting, I am confident that this is
simply down to the definitions of {book} cf {article}, as when
switching to {article} everything works fine...

Unfortunately, I am simply a user of this technology and have limited
understanding of the way in which it functions!   Perhaps ideally I
would have the bibliography titled as "Bibliography" rather that the
achemso default "References", but to be honest it would be great just
to have it work at all....

If there is anyone who can help I would much appreciate your efforts!

Thanks,
