This Article contains an error in the order of the Figures and Figure legends. In the HTML version Figures 1, 2 and 3 were published as Figures 3, 1 and 2 respectively. In the PDF version the Figures 1, 2 and 3 were published as Figures 2, 3 and 1 respectively.

The correct Figures 1, 2 and 3 appear below along with their accompanying legends.

Figure 1
Figure 1

Schematic illustration of the synthesis of half-planar gold particles. (a) 2-CTC resin, (b) silica NPs immobilized resin, (c) gold NPs immobilized on the resin, (d) cleavage of asymmetric gold NPs from resin, (e) filtration to obtain the asymmetric gold NPs; 2-CTC resin remained in the filter, and (f) obtained asymmetric gold NPs.

Figure 2

Gold NPs of various shapes and sizes immobilized on the beads. (a) Illustration of gold growth on the silica NPs. (b) SEM images of gold coated silica NPs on the beads (200 µM) (i) in H2O solvent (stirring), (ii) in H2O solvent (shaking) (iii) in EtOH solvent, (c) SEM images of gold coated silica NPs on the beads (in H2O solvent) (i) 50 µM, (ii) 200 µM, (iii) 800 µM.

Figure 3
Figure 3

Cleavage from the beads and half-planar particles. (a) Illustration of beads and NPs, (b) SEM image of bead, (c) high magnification SEM image of bead, (d) low magnification SEM image of asymmetric nanorose, (e) side view of nanorose (f) top view of nanorose particle.
