Correction for ‘Sulfonated graphitic carbon nitride as a highly selective and efficient heterogeneous catalyst for the conversion of biomass-derived saccharides to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural in green solvents’ by Tripti Chhabra, et al., Green Chem., 2019, 21, 6012–6026.


The authors regret a missed citation of a related article on sulfonated graphitic carbon nitride, which had been used previously as a heterogeneous catalyst for the conversion of carbohydrates to furanics and related value-added products.1 The introduction is updated as given below.

The sentence in the introduction section, ‘In this regard, sulfonated graphitic carbon nitride has also been previously reported by Varma et al.27 as a heterogeneous catalyst for the production of biofuels through the esterification of fatty acids, which could be mainly attributed to the acidic nature of the catalyst’ (page 6013) is modified as ‘In this regard, sulfonated graphitic carbon nitride has also been previously reported by Varma et al.1,27 as a heterogeneous catalyst for the production of biofuels through the esterification of fatty acids and for the conversion of carbohydrates to furanics and related value-added products. Both of which could be mainly attributed to the acidic nature of the catalyst’.

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