    The indicative primary particle diameter of TiO2 nanoparticles listed in Table 1 is 24 nm as detailed in Xia et al. 2013.  

    The Fe3O4 nanoparticles were prepared by chemical co-precipitation, and have an indicative primary particle diameter of 12.8 nm as reported in Teeguarden et al. 2014.
