ACS Editors’ Choice: Invisibility, Rare Earth Elements in San Francisco Bay and more!

This week:  Researchers build a biomimetic mechanical chameleon to test a new method for achieving invisibility via real-time active camouflage, while a study shows concentrations of rare earth  elements used in new high-tech applications are rapidly building up in San Francisco Bay – 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.

Check out this week’s picks!
