Erratum to: in situ-prepared composite materials of PEDOT: PSS buffer layer-metal nanoparticles and their application to organic solar cells

The original article was published in Nanoscale Research Letters 2012 7:641

Correction statement

In the Methods section of our published article [1], 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. [2]. Hence, we correct the statement in our manuscript by crediting the work by Moreno et al. [2]:

[Before Correction]

“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”.

[After Correction]

“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 [24]”.
