Retraction of ‘Catalytic decomposition of ammonium dinitramide (ADN) as high energetic material over CuO-based catalysts’ by Rachid Amrousse et al., Catalysis Science and Technology, 2013, 3, 2614–2619.


The Royal Society of Chemistry hereby wholly retracts this Catalysis Science and Technology article due to the reproduction of Fig. 3 from ref. 1 without proper attribution. It is also noted that this Catalysis Science and Technology article contains text overlap with ref. 2.

Keiichi Hori has stated that he and 2 co-authors; Kohji Fujisato and Hiroto Habu, were not aware of the submission of this paper until after it was published. Kohji Fujisato can no longer be contacted.

Claudine Follet-Houttemane has stated that she was unaware of the submission and did not contribute to the work reported in the paper. Ahmed Bachar initially stated that he did not contribute to the work reported in the paper but has since not been contactable, and therefore has not provided a comment on this retraction.

Rachid Amrousse opposes the retraction.

Retraction endorsed by Anna Simpson, Executive Editor, Catalysis Science and Technology.
