Correction for ‘Thermoreversible crystallization-driven aggregation of diblock copolymer nanoparticles in mineral oil’ by Matthew J. Derry et al., Chem. Sci., 2018, 9, 4071–4082.


The authors regret that in Table 1 the units for particle diameter are incorrect. This should be nm. The correct Table 1 is displayed below.
Table 1 Summary of targeted copolymer compositions, BzMA conversions (% BzMA) as judged by 1H NMR spectroscopy, GPC and DLS data (particle diameter and polydispersity index, PDI) obtained for a series of PBeMA37–PBzMAx diblock copolymers prepared by RAFT dispersion polymerization of BzMA in mineral oil. Synthesis conditions: 90 °C, [PBeMA37 macro-CTA]/[T21s] molar ratio = 5.0, 20% w/w solids. Relevant data for the PBeMA37 macro-CTA are also shown for reference
