A sentence was mistakenly omitted from the end of part 1 of the Experimental section. The final sentence the part 1 should be:

Prior to the catalytic test, gallium oxide was reacted for 4 h at 80 °C with cyclooctene and aqueous H2O2 in ethyl acetate to remove the Cl-species still present in the material, and then washed with ethanol and dried overnight at 90 °C.27
