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

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!
