ACS Editors’ Choice: Antarctic Lead, “Drug-Initiated” Delivery Systems — and More!

This week: Lead contamination in Antartica, a new anode material for lithium-ion batteries and a look at “drug-initiated” medication delivery systems — 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.
