Correction for ‘N-Heterocyclic carbene catalyzed dehydrogenative coupling of enals: synthesis of monobactams’ by Fangyi Li, et al., Org. Chem. Front., 2016, 3, 335–338.


The following article “N-Heterocyclic carbene catalyzed dehydrogenative coupling of enals: synthesis of monobactams” by Fangyi Li, Changgui Zhao and Jian Wang has been published in Organic Chemistry Frontiers. The article reports the preparation of a range of monobactams.

However it has come to the authors’ attention that, with the available spectroscopic data, it is not possible to rule out the products being 1,3-oxazin-6-ones rather than monobactams.

Organic Chemistry Frontiers is publishing this correction to draw the attention of readers to the fact that the structures of the products cannot be unambiguously determined.

The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for these errors and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers.
