Small 2016, 12, 3181 Inspection of Figure 2 reveals that the reference spectra of TiO2 controls in Figure 2C and Figure 2D are in fact the same, suggesting that the same column of data had in error been plotted twice, even though these correspond to different spectral regions (the Zn region from 1015–1050 eV in the case of C, and the Fe region 705–740 eV in the case of D). 2 Figure (Figure presented.) Crystallized structure and valence state of ZFO/TiO2 heterostructures. A) XRD patterns of TiO2 NWs (lower line) and ZnFe2O4 nanosheets/TiO2 NWs (upper line) heterostructures. B) Ti 2p XPS spectra (TiO2 upper line), C) Zn 2p XPS spectra (TiO2 lower line), and D) Fe 2p XPS spectra of the TiO2 NWs (TiO2 lower line) and ZnFe2O4 nanosheets/TiO2 NWs heterostructures. The authors reviewed the archived original data which they had collected in March 2015. Indeed, they had unintentionally plotted the same spectrum for the TiO2 control sample in Figure 2C and 2D. The data showed that Figure 2D was the one in error. In the corrected version below, the authors have kept Figure 2C unchanged, and have plotted Figure 2D so that it uses the correct data set for the TiO2 control sample. The authors apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
