ACS Editors’ Choice: A New Use for Shrimp Shells — And More!

This week: a new use for shrimp shells, a method for verifying nerve agent exposure, bilayer graphene synthesis — 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!
