In the Abstract:
“This is the first time branched gold NPs have been synthesised in a microfluidics platform.”
“This is the first time branched gold NPs have been synthesised in a microdroplets platform.”
Additionally, in the Reference list the Authors omitted the below paper, which is listed as Reference 1. These should be cited in the introduction section as below:
“Thus, transferring bulk nanoparticle synthesis protocols into microdroplets platforms offers high control over the reproducibility of metallic nanoparticles, and provides an effective scaling-up strategy for successful technology transfer from the laboratory to the industry27-33.”
