Survey Results: The Most Memorable Chemistry Research Of 2015

During the first week of December, we asked readers to rank some of the biggest moments in chemistry research from 2015. More than 600 chemistry enthusiasts responded! Here’s how they ranked the poll’s five options:


Some survey respondents submitted their own chemistry moments of the year. Here are our favorites:

#1 with a nano-bullet is the laboratory confirmation of C60+ as the spectroscopic origin of two diffuse interstellar bands. (C&EN’s coverage of this research.)

Biogen’s aducanumab drug substantially reduces amyloid plaques.(C&EN’s coverage of this Alzheimer’s news.)
