Dutcher Lab Paper Chosen for ACS Editors' Choice

The Dutcher Lab's recent paper on phase-dependent soluble surfactant transport was selected for ACS Editors' Choice. Their work, "Phase-Dependent Surfactant Transport on the Microscale: Interfacial Tension and Droplet Coalescence," was published on December 3, 2020, in Langmuir. Authors are Associate Professor Cari Dutcher, postdoc Yun Chen, and Shweta Narayan, a recent PhD graduate of the Dutcher Lab.

The paper highlights fundamental measurements and models of surfactant transport to curved fluid-fluid interfaces, a key step in stabilization of emulsions and foams. ACS Editors' Choice is an honor given to a single article per day selected out of the entire ACS portfolio (>400 editors; 44 peer-review journals), and is sponsored for immediate, open access by ACS due to its potential for broad public interest. "These peer-reviewed, open access articles consist of research that exemplifies the Society's commitment to improving people's lives through the transforming power of chemistry."
