Correction for ‘Hydrothermal synthesis of γ-MnOOH nanowires using sapless leaves as the reductant: an effective catalyst for the regio-specific epoxidation of β-ionone’ by Yuqing Luo et al., Sustainable Energy Fuels, 2019, 3, 2572–2576, DOI: 10.1039/C9SE00536F.


The authors regret an error in Fig. 3d in the original article where the (1 1 −1) lattice plane was incorrectly labelled as (1 1 1). The correct version of Fig. 3 is shown below.
image file: d0se90039g-f3.tif
Fig. 3 (a) Low-magnification and (b) high-magnification SEM images; (c) TEM image of the sample; (d) HRTEM image (inset: the SAED pattern); (e) EDX-elemental mapping images of Mn and O for the γ-MnOOH nanowires.

In addition, the corresponding description starting on line 12 of page 3 should read as ‘The average interlayer spacings of the prepared sample are approximately 0.34 nm as labelled in Fig. 3d, comparable with the d-values of the (1 1 −1) lattice plane of γ-MnOOH in other work’ rather than ‘The average interlayer spacings of the prepared sample are approximately 0.34 nm as labelled in Fig. 3d, comparable with the d-values of the (1 1 1) lattice plane of γ-MnOOH in other work’.

These corrections do not affect the conclusions.

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