Correction for ‘Reactive polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon dimerization drives soot nucleation’ by M. R. Kholghy et al., Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2018, 20, 10926–10938.


The authors would like to make the following corrections to the published article.

(1) In the Nomenclature, the following should be added:

Av Avogadro number [mole−1]

(2) On page 10928, eqn (1) and (2) should be changed as follows. In the correct format, the changes are shown in bold.

Wrong format Correct format

This change will affect some formulas listed in Table 1 of page 10928. The changes are shown in bold.

(3) On page 10928, right column after eqn (3):

Wrong value of a Correct value of a
where a = 0.38 and b = 1.8 where a = 0.115 and b = 1.8

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