Correction for ‘A miniaturised 3D printed polypropylene reactor for online reaction analysis by mass spectrometry’ by Gianmario Scotti et al., React. Chem. Eng., 2017, 2, 299–303.


Two references were inadvertently omitted from the published article by the authors. Therefore, the wrong reference numbers were used after three sentences. The last four references in the reference list should be (numbers 29 and 30 are the added references):

28 Y. Yang, F. Han, J. Ouyang, Y. Zhao, J. Han and N. Na, Anal. Chim. Acta, 2016, 902, 135–141.

29 G. Wypych, Handbook of Polymers, Elsevier, Oxford, 1st edn, 2012.

30 S. Waheed, J. M. Cabot, N. P. Macdonald, T. Lewis, R. M. Guijt, B. Paull and M. C. Breadmore, Lab Chip, 2016, 16, 1993–2013.

31 F. Liu, R. S. Paton, S. Kim, Y. Liang and K. N. Houk, J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2013, 135, 15642–15649.

The sentences with the corrected reference numbers are:

The reactor was 3D printed from PP, which is rarely used for FDM because it has relatively weak mechanical properties compared to the more commonly used materials poly(lactic acid), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, poly(ethylene terephthalate), and nylon.29

A special feature of FDM is that it allows the 3D printing process to be interrupted at a desired point, and it can be recommenced later.30

The double-bond strain of trans-cyclooctene is released during the Diels–Alder reaction, which makes the reaction energetically favored and fast.31

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