There are lots of different ways to look at the reach of an article. One way to consider the influence of an article is just by looking at how many people chose to read it. To that end, the American Chemical Society has compiled lists of the five most-read chemistry articles that appeared in each ACS Publications journal in 2017, including research, reviews, perspectives and editorial pieces. These lists show a perspective on where the chemistry community allocated their attention over the past year. Among these highly read papers in the Physical Chemistry category is listed the outstanding work of Ph.D. student Alexis J. Eugene and Associate Professor Marcelo I. Guzman, "Reactivity of Ketyl and Acetyl Radicals from Direct Solar Actinic Photolysis of Aqueous Pyruvic Acid" published by The Journal of Physical Chemistry A, 2017, 121 (15), pp 2924–2935, DOI: 10.1021/acs.jpca.6b11916.
