TrAC Trends in Analytical Chemistry, Volume 113, April 2019, Pages 392-401.

This article explores a previously overlooked form of microplastic pollution. Directly relevant to SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production), SDG 15 (life on land) and SDG 14 (life below water), this research investigates the interactions between tire derived microplastics and organic matter within the environment.

Solar water disinfection catalysed by metal-free photocatalyst has emerged as a promising approach for clean water production, directly contributing to SDG 6 (clean water and sanitation).
Elsevier,

Joule, Volume 3, Issue 3, 20 March 2019, Pages 631-633.

This piece provides insights into what has caused solar photovoltaic costs to fall so rapidly, such that in many parts of the world solar power plants are now more economical than coal- or gas-fired plants. This relates directly to SDG 7 (affordable & clean energy).
Elsevier,

Joule, Volume 3, Issue 4, April 2019, pages 992- 1005.  

Contributing to SDG 13 (climate action), this rigorous study shows that renewable electricity systems could work equally well in both historical and future climates, despite changing weather patterns.
