Erratum to: The Fabrication of Nano-Particles in aqueous solution from Oxyfluoride Glass Ceramics by Thermal Induction and Corrosion Treatment

Correction

The key reference to work of Mortier and Patriarche had been inadvertently omitted from this article [1]. The statement below in the original INTRODUCTION section is not very accurate and appropriate:

"Unfortunately, ever since the first report on oxyfluoride GCs, there have been much research on the properties of nano-particles in GCs but no publication has been reported about how to obtain free nano-particles in aqueous solution from the GC-host and how to apply it to the fields mentioned above, especially in biological field."

The authors amend it as follows:

Mortier and Patriarche [2] showed that PbF2 nanoparticles could be produced by dissolving the amorphous GeO2-PbO phase of GCs with HF. Unfortunately, the corrosion between GeO2-PbO and HF can hardly be complete so that the nanoparticle had an amorphous phase as a shell in their experiment. Therefore, no publication has been reported about how to obtain free and pure crystalline nano-particles in aqueous solution from the GC-host and how to apply it to the fields mentioned above.
