In the Methods section of our published article , we mentioned that “we developed a novel in situ means of preparing stabilized Au or Ag NPs…”. However, we have recently noticed that the similar process has been reported by Moreno et al. . Hence, we correct the statement in our manuscript by crediting the work by Moreno et al. :
“We developed a novel in situ means of preparing stabilized Au or Ag NPs by the reduction of chloroauric acid (HAuCl4) or silver nitrate (AgNO3) with a sodium borohydride (NaBH4) solution in the presence of aqueous PEDOT:PSS media”.
“We used a simple in situ procedure of preparing stabilized Au or Ag NPs by the reduction of chloroauric acid (HAuCl4) or silver nitrate (AgNO3) with a sodium borohydride (NaBH4) solution in the presence of aqueous PEDOT:PSS media [2–4]”.
