Correction for ‘Metallacyclopentadienes: synthesis, structure and reactivity’ by Wangyang Ma et al., Chem. Soc. Rev., 2017, 46, 1160–1192.

The authors regret that some references on catalytic reductive C–C coupling via carbonyl and imine insertion into cationic rhodacyclopentadienes were inadvertently omitted from Section 2.1.6 of the original article, and are of direct relevance to this review. These references are listed below as ref. 1–4.

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