### Biblatex error depends on style

Hi,

I'm trying to compile my thesis using latexmk / biblatex. It does compile without any problems when using style=chem-acs in biblatex, but I receive a bunch of error messages if I try it with style=phys (missing "{" inserted, the message points to the line when I actually invoke \printbibliography).

Any ideas? What additional information shall I provide so someone could help me?

Many thanks!

please post that bunch of error messages here.

The best would be posting original code that produces the error (called minimal working example).

They were all the same messages: missing "{" inserted.

In the meantime I have figured out what is causing the problem. Apparently, if the title of the cited reference contains formulae in math mode, they must be enclosed in {} brackets, e.g. {\$10^{-3}\$}, otherwise the phys style does not accept it. I have no idea why

Thank you for your time anyway!

Great that you found it!

It seems that the style does something with the title, such as using `\Makelowercase` or `\Makeuppercase` on it, that cannot work on math formulas. The additional braces protect it, kind of hide it.
