Look Forward to ImagineNano 2018 with ACS Publications

ACS Publications is heading to Bilbao, Spain, for Europe’s largest nanoscience and nanotechnology event, ImagineNano 2018. The conference, held March 13-15, will feature a variety of important speakers, including ACS Omega Co-Editor Luis Liz-Marzan. The event promises to be an eye-opening, thought-provoking experience for everyone in attendance.

But your conference learning experience isn’t confined within the walls of the venue. That’s why ACS Publications has compiled a reading list of recent research papers from the event’s impressive list of plenary and keynote speakers. Now you can catch up on the latest research in the field, even if you can’t make it to Spain this year.

All of the papers below have been published under the Open Access model and are available to read for free. Find out more about ACS’ Open Access publishing options.
