ACS Editors’ Choice: Engineering Crystal Properties Through Solid Solutions — and More!

This week: Engineering crystal properties through solid solutions, rational electrode-electrolyte design for efficient ammonia electrosynthesis under ambient conditions, exploring GPCR–lipid interactions by molecular dynamics simulations — 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.
