Correction for ‘Fluorescent vesicles formed by simple surfactants induced by oppositely-charged carbon quantum dots’ by Xiaofeng Sun et al., Chem. Commun., 2016, 52, 12024–12027.

The authors wish to clarify statements made in the original article regarding the cryo-TEM image shown in Fig. 2d. In the original article, the authors stated that the cryo-TEM image showed vesicles, however, this conclusion cannot be supported by the data provided, and Fig. 2d of the original article likely only shows ice contamination. Whilst Fig. 2d and the interpretation of the cryo-TEM image is ambiguous, this has no impact on the overall conclusions of the paper.

Fig. 2 Typical NS-TEM (a, c, e and f), FF-TEM (b) and cryo-TEM (d) images of the turbid samples containing 1.0 mmol L−1 SO (a and b), 1.2 mmol L−1 SDS (c and d) and 0.6 mmol L−1 AOT (e and f). Inset photographs in a, c and e are indicative of the Tyndall effect. The concentration of CQDs is fixed at 0.5 mg mL−1. The scale bar corresponds to 200 nm.
