Composto group article “Zwitterionic surface chemistry enhances detachment of bacteria under shear” featured in the Soft Matter highlights of 2022 collection

This past week, the Composto group’s Soft Matter article “Zwitterionic surface chemistry enhances detachment of bacteria under shear” has been featured in an online themed collection to highlight some of the most popular articles published in the journal during the past year.

Most excitingly, the papers in this collection are free to access until 31st May 2023 (if not already open access) here.  In addition, check out more in the Twitter post here. Al Crosby (Editor in Chief) reflects: “2022 was an exciting year for Soft Matter! So many great papers advancing the field and demonstrating its extensive, positive impact. To try to capture this exciting year in Soft Matter, the Editorial Board has selected these Soft Matter papers as a highlight collection.”

We would like to recognize this achievement would not have been possible without our collaborators Mark Goulian, Jonghoon Coi, Daeyeon Lee and their groups and Solvay of Bristol, PA. The Composto group is grateful for the honor and would like to invite the community to visit the themed collection to view exciting work from other research groups in addition to take a look at the article we are proud to share with the scientific community.
