Environmental Science & Technology Letters Honors Earth Day


Did you know the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology Letters (ES&T Letters) is an international environmental forum for rapid communications on experimental and theoretical results of exceptional timeliness in all aspects of environmental science, and short reviews on emerging environmental science & technology topics? The topics covered are highly relevant to the preservation of the environment.

Each month manuscripts are published that describe cross-disciplinary research and address emerging issues that are of particular importance. Some of the topics covered include characterization of natural and affected environments, energy and environmental aspects of nanotechnology, measurements methods and processes, and novel remediation and control technologies. Learn more about the high quality, high impact research by reading articles that concern our environment.

Help celebrate Earth Day 2016 by staying informed about environmental advances with ES&T Letters. As a service to our global community of researchers, the articles listed below will remain open for all to access and read. The Editors’ Choice Articles were selected based on recommendations by the scientific editors of ACS journals from around the world.
