ACS Editors’ Choice: Using Chlorophyll in Visible Light Catalysis — And More!

This week: using chlorophyll as a photosensitizer in visible-light photoredox catalysis, developing a new generation of metal chelating polymer (MCP) reagents, studying long-term human exposure to organophosphate flame retardants — 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.
