ACS Editors’ Choice: Plasma Technology, Molecular Clusters, Self-Assembly of Amphiphiles

This week: Plasma technology, molecular clusters, self-assembly of amphiphiles — 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.
