The authors would like to thank Dr Nathan Nicholas for helpful discussions and for supplying experimental data, and Prof. Yang Ming-Li for providing the geometric coordinates of the zinc oxide nanoclusters (in the absence of citrate), which formed the starting point for the nanocluster calculations. Thanks to MItchell Sesso for help deconvoluting the experimental data.
