Shortly after the appearance of the paper mentioned above,1 it was brought to our attention by Prof. Josť-Luis Serrano at the 8th International Symposium on Metallomesogens (Namur, Belgium, 28–31 May 2003) that we had overlooked his previous work on azines.2–5 By this addendum we want to give proper credit to the work of Serrano. Some of the azines we accidently obtained through the lanthanide-promoted decomposition of hydrazide ligands had already been obtained in the past via conventional organic synthesis methods.5
