Read the Best Environmental Science & Technology Letters Papers of 2016

Learn about Environmental Science & Technology Letters Editor-in-Chief David Sedlak’s GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ official attempt at staging the Largest chemistry lesson at the upcoming ACS National Meeting.

The Environmental Science & Technology Letters (ES&T Letters) editorial team had the challenging task of choosing the papers that stood out from all others published in 2016 due to their timeliness, novelty, and quality.

Four studies were identified that especially merited inclusion in the ES&T Letters Best Papers of 2016 – they are listed below. Read the ES&T Letters editorial team’s editorial to learn more about each paper. Congratulations to the winners!
