There are many ways to measure an article’s success after it is published. One helpful method of evaluating a scientific publication’s reach and influence is by looking at how many times it has been read. Below, we have gathered a selection of recently published chemistry articles that were among the most read in December 2022 across all ACS Publications journals.*

Topics in this month's collection include perovskite solar cells, batteries, COVID-19, and more. We hope you find this content informative and useful.
