The following papers are very important in the opinion of two referees.
The Quest for Polysulfides in Lithium–Sulfur Battery Electrolytes: An Operando Confocal Raman Spectroscopy Study
Dr. Julien Hannauer, Dr. Johan Scheers, Julien Fullenwarth, Dr. Bernard Fraisse, Prof. Dr. Lorenzo Stievano and Prof. Dr. Patrik Johansson
On point: Operando confocal Raman spectroscopy coupled to DFT simulations allows the evolution of dissolved polysulfides in the electrolyte of working lithium–sulfur batteries to be followed unambiguously.
Exploring the Free Energy and Conformational Landscape of tRNA at High Temperature and Pressure
Caroline Schuabb, Melanie Berghaus, Christopher Rosin and Prof. Dr. Roland Winter
RNA under pressure! Exploration of the conformational and free-energy landscape of the 76-residue yeast phenylalanine transfer RNA (tRNAPhe; see figure) reveals that RNA unfolding differs not only from protein unfolding but also from DNA melting. Compared with the pronounced temperature effect, pressure-dependent changes in the secondary structure of tRNAPhe are small, however, even up to the 1000 MPa range.
