ACS Editors’ Choice: Fish-Killing Microalgae — and More!

This week: fish-killing microalgae, electrochemical reduction of CO2, potential treatment of diabetic nephropathy — 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.
