ACS Editors’ Choice: Understanding the Properties of Colloidal Double Quantum Dots

This week: colloidal double quantum dots, simulating gas–liquid−water partitioning – optical sensors for simultaneous imaging of pH and dissolved O2- and more!

Each and every day, ACS grants free access to a new peer-reviewed research article from one of the Society’s journals. These articles are specially chosen by a team of scientific editors of ACS journals from around the world to highlight the transformative power of chemistry. Access to these articles will remain open to all as a public service.

Check out this week’s picks!
