This question already has an answer here:

How can I produce the correct unicode character for í for a name in the bbl file as reference ?

I wrote it like this Mac{\'{i}}as but error still shows.

    Typically one would use \'{\i}. However, are you processing your bibliography with any package? For example, biber from biblatex. – Werner Sep 13 '16 at 17:54
  • Why are you editing the bbl file by hand? You should be entering the appropriate information in the bib file. – Mico Sep 13 '16 at 18:50
  • If you are using biblatex with Biber Input encoding error after upgrading from Biber 1.9 to Biber 2.1 as well as the linked questions there are relevant. – moewe Sep 13 '16 at 20:12

I would just use {\'i} and this should be ok.

    -1: This doesn't answer the question, really, and is not all that helpful. If someone says "X doesn't work" and it is followed by "X does work" as an answer (no further explanation), it's not helpful. – Werner Sep 13 '16 at 20:01
  • ...I'd rather suggest waiting for clarification from the OP before providing a comment-like answer like this. – Werner Sep 13 '16 at 20:18
