ACS Editors’ Choice: Fighting Infections, Preparing Graphene — And More!

This week: research into the treatment of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections, the scalable preparation of high-quality graphene, the study of ultralow interfacial tensions — 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.
