Fig. 5a in our original paper was published as follows:
This image was obtained at 16:35:05 on November 16, 2011. By checking related records in the laboratory notebook, the authors have now confirmed that the image was observed on a COOH-terminated thiolate monolayer which was brought out of n-octanol, dried with N2 gas, and immersed in a 50 mM KCl aqueous solution. This was not the appropriate conditions for Fig. 5a.
The correct image for Fig. 5a should have been as follows:
This image was obtained at 12:25:43 on November 28, 2011. By checking records in the laboratory notebook, the authors have now confirmed that the image was observed on a COOH-terminated monolayer immersed in a 50 mM aqueous NaCl solution. Fig. 5a should have been prepared with this image. This correction does not affect any discussions and conclusions of the paper.
The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for these errors and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers.
