The editorial team of ChemCatChem would like to correct mistakes in Schemes 1 and 2. In Scheme 1, the most important change is that there should be no carbon–carbon double bond in levulinic acid. In Scheme 2 there are two mistakes concerning the structure of molecules (γ-valerolactone and 4-hydroxypentanoic acid), and the transformation from 4-hydroxypentanoic acid to γ-valerolactone should proceed through dehydration not through reduction. Please see the corrected schemes below. The authors and the editors of ChemCatChem apologize for this oversight.

Scheme 1.

The mechanism of LA formation.

Scheme 2.

The schematic representation for reaction pathway of LA hydrogenation to GVL and 2-MTHF.
