JACS Citation Guidelines
According to the JACS Author Guidelines (linked above), "Authors should consult The ACS Style Guide, 3rd ed.; American Chemical Society: Washington, DC, 2006, for the appropriate style to use in citations of journal papers, books, and other publications. In literature references, article titles must be included and journal abbreviations should be those used in the Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index (CASSI)."
Looking at recent JACS Communications is helpful for understanding the formatting and style requirements. At the link above, click on an issue of JACS, then scroll down to the "Communications" heading to view communications. IMPORTANT NOTE: Starting with the December 26, 2018 issue of JACS, communications are formatted so that the references lists include article titles. Earlier references lists skip titles and simply include the author names, year of publication, journal title, etc.
