Correction for ‘Boosted visible light photodegradation activity of boron doped rGO/g-C3N4 nanocomposites: the role of C–O–C bonds’ by Shaobo Li et al., New J. Chem., 2018, 42, 17644–17651.


The authors would like to correct an error in the text of the published article. The sentence on Page 17648, Left Column, Lines 48–53 should read:

As shown in Fig. 4c, the B-5%rGO/g-C3N4 nanocomposite exhibits the lowest interfacial charge-transfer resistance among the as-synthesized nanomaterials, suggesting a high separation efficiency of charge carriers in B-rGO/g-C3N4 owing to the enhanced C–O–C covalent bonding between g-C3N4 and rGO.

The authors would like to correct Fig. 4, as the UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectra shown in Fig. 4a are incorrect in the published article. The correct Fig. 4 is shown below.

Fig. 4 UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectra and plots of the transformed Kubelka–Munk function versus the energy of light (inset) (a), photoluminescence (PL) spectra (b), EIS (c) and transient photocurrent responses (d) of the as-synthesized samples (g-C3N4 (I), B-g-C3N4 (II), 5%rGO/g-C3N4 (III) and B-5%rGO/g-C3N4 (IV)).

The authors would also like to correct Fig. 5, as Fig. 5d is incorrect in the published article. The correct Fig. 5 is shown below.

Fig. 5 Photocatalytic activities (a) and the corresponding kinetic study (b) of RhB degradation under visible light (λ > 420 nm) irradiation over the as-synthesized catalysts; RhB degradation efficiency after 150 min over the fresh catalysts and the catalysts after being reused 4 times (c); (pure g-C3N4 (I), B-g-C3N4 (II), 5%rGO/g-C3N4 (III) and B-5%rGO/g-C3N4 (IV)) (d) photocatalytic activity of the B-5%rGO/g-C3N4 composite for RhB, MO and phenol degradation.
