The organic chemistry of silver acetylides

Ulla Halbes-Letinois, Jean-Marc Weibel and Patrick Pale

Chem. Soc. Rev., 2007, 36, 759–769 (DOI: 10.1039/b602151b). Amendment published 13th August 2007.

Unfortunately an error in chemical nomenclature appeared on page 760. Contrary to what was stated, silver acetylides of propiolic esters are NOT explosive. The silver acetylide which has exploded on at least one occasion is AgC">C-C(O)CH3.

The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for this error and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers.
