Correction for ‘Chemoselective dehydrogenative esterification of aldehydes and alcohols with a dimeric rhodium(II) catalyst’ by Junjie Cheng et al., Chem. Sci., 2016, 7, 4428–4434.


The authors regret that the incorrect temperature was stated on p. 4432, left column, line 5, of the original paper. The corrected sentence, in which “at ambient temperature” has been corrected to “at 90 °C”, is as follows:

“The crude 1H NMR of the mixture resulting from treating 11 with excess NaOAc (40 equivalents) in MeOH at 90 °C showed that 11 was fully converted into a small amount of 14 and a major new compound 16 (Scheme 6).”

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