The authors wish to rename compounds 1 and 2 (shown in Figure 1 of the original article [1]) as varioloids C and D, respectively (Figure 1), as the synonyms varioloids A and B have already been assigned by us to two other compounds in another publication [2]. We thank Andrew Robert from CRC Press for bringing this problem to our attention and apologize for any inconvenience caused.
