Correction to: Communications Chemistry; https://doi.org/10.1038/s42004-019-0113-8, published online 28 January 2019

The original PDF and HTML versions of this Article contained errors in Eqs. (1) and (2). In both equations, the approximately equal to symbol displayed incorrectly as ». The correct versions of the equations are as follows:

$${\mathrm{\Delta }}E_{{\mathrm{linear}}}\sim \frac{{2\left| {\mu ^ \rightharpoonup } \right|^2}}{{4\pi \varepsilon R^3}}\left( {1 - 3{\mathrm{cos}}^2\theta } \right)$$
(1)
$${\mathrm{\Delta }}E_{{\mathrm{lamellar}}}\sim \frac{{8\left| {\mu ^ \rightharpoonup } \right|^2}}{{4\pi \varepsilon d^3}}$$
(2)

This has been corrected in both the PDF and HTML versions of the Article.
