ACS Editors’ Choice: Analysis of Students’ Annotations of Reaction Coordinate Diagrams — and More!

This week: Analysis of students’ annotations of reaction coordinate diagrams, microstructure and formation mechanism of gold-colored bizen stoneware, switching of radiation force on optically trapped microparticles — 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.
