On page 446, column 2, the sentence “Inoue and co-workers found that it promotes homocoupling of benzaldehyde at a low loading (4 mol %) to afford benzoin in 90% yield and >99% ee (Scheme 6) [19]” should be read as “Zeitler and Connon reported that it promotes homocoupling of benzaldehyde at a low loading (4 mol %) to afford benzoin in 90% yield and >99% ee (Scheme 6) [19].”

The oversight, and the consequent inconvenience to Professor Zeitler and Professor Connon and their co-workers, as well as the readers of the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry is highly regretted.
