I'm new to LaTeX and writing a chemistry thesis. I would like all of my references to be footnotes (i.e. no bibliography at the end), formatted in the ACS style. To that end, I want to use biblatex, Biber, and the chem-acs style, as this seems to be the cleanest approach.

However, when I run the code below, the footnote just has a number, no text. Interestingly, if I use a verbose citestyle with chem-acs bibstyle, I get aaaaalmost what I want...except it does et. al instead of all three authors. There's got to be something embarrassingly simple I'm missing, but what?

\documentclass{article}
%\usepackage[citestyle=verbose-ibid,bibstyle=chem-acs,autocite=footnote]{biblatex}
\usepackage[style=chem-acs,autocite=footnote]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{references.bib}
\begin{document}
Some text. \autocite{Buchwald}
%\printbibliography
\end{document}

This is the reference info:

@article{Buchwald
,   title   = {A new palladium precatalyst allows for the fast Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reactions of unstable polyfluorophenyl and 2-heteroaryl boronic acids.}
,   author  = {Kinzel, Tom and Zhang, Yong and Buchwald, Stephen L}
,   journal = {J. Am. Chem. Soc.}
,   volume  = {132}
,   number  = {40}
,   year    = {2010}
,   pages   = {14073--14075}
}

As you observe, chem-acs doesn't (currently) have \footcite set up to provide what you want. You are on the right track thinking you can mix bibliography and citation styles, but you'll need to set maxnames manually

\documentclass{article}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@article{Buchwald
,   title   = {A new palladium precatalyst allows for the fast Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reactions of unstable polyfluorophenyl and 2-heteroaryl boronic acids.}
,   author  = {Kinzel, Tom and Zhang, Yong and Buchwald, Stephen L}
,   journal = {J. Am. Chem. Soc.}
,   volume  = {132}
,   number  = {40}
,   year    = {2010}
,   pages   = {14073--14075}
}\end{filecontents}
\usepackage[bibstyle=chem-acs,citestyle=verbose,maxnames=99]{biblatex}
\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}
\begin{document}
Some text. \autocite{Buchwald}
\end{document}

  • I'll probably look at updating \footcite to address this.
