ACS Editors’ Choice: Insights Into Clean Water and Dirty Air

This week: air quality monitoring, disinfection byproducts in pools and spas,  prediction of electron ionization mass spectra from first principles — 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!
