Correction for ‘A review of carrier thermoelectric-transport theory in organic semiconductors’ by Nianduan Lu et al., Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2016, 18, 19503–19525.


In the published paper, we described two definitions of the conductivity. One is defined by Mott (see eqn (7), image file: c7cp90124k-t1.tif). The other is defined as the Kubo–Greenwood type conductivity (see eqn (22), image file: c7cp90124k-t2.tif). The definition of conductivity for both eqn (7) and (22) is equivalent. In order to better distinguish these two definitions, we change eqn (7) to image file: c7cp90124k-t3.tif, where σE is the Mott-type conductivity. At the same time, we change eqn (8) to image file: c7cp90124k-t4.tif, and eqn (9) to σ(E) = eg(E)μ(E)f(E), in order to be consistent with eqn (22).

Additionally, we remove the differential term dE in eqn (23), so that eqn (23) should be modified to σ(E) = eg(E)μ(E)f(E).

Furthermore, in the published paper, R3 was omitted in eqn (44). Therefore, the parameter R3 should be added in eqn (44), as follows:
