In the run up to Christmas members of AK Glorius are asked to present their favourite paper of the year. Of the eighteen people presenting, nine have selected so far, and as you might expect Science papers feature quite heavily; and strangely enough, most papers selected were published in the last 2-3 months! Once the list is complete I’ll post all the papers here, and probably give my moderately informed opinion as to which I think worthy of the list, or otherwise.
What would be interesting in the meantime, is your (i.e. you internet people) Paper of the Year. Nominations in the comments or via #chemPOY13 would be great, and then we can see how representative our list is in comparison.
p.s. We are organic chemists by the way
