There is an error in the discussion of Figure 7. In the subsection Thermal treatments in O2 environments, Figure 7 displays in situ Raman spectra of supported WO3/SiO2 under an oxidizing environment and increasing temperature. The figure was erroneously discussed with regards to the effect of temperature on the presence of isolated surface dioxo (O=)2W(O–Si)2 (985 cm-1) and isolated surface mono-oxo O=W(O–Si)4 (1010 cm-1). The correct discussion of the effect of temperature is as follows: As the catalyst temperature is increased, the isolated surface mono-oxo O=W(O–Si)4 catalytic active sites are converted to the isolated surface dioxo WO4 catalytic active sites.

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