On pages 295 and 297 of the Discussion section of our paper [2] we applied to the chiral molecule L-ascorbic acid the same reasoning regarding internal symmetry of acetic acid reported by Mooij et al. in a paper that we failed to reference [1]. The authors wish to apologize for this omission and for any inconvenience for readers.
This paper [2] is based on research that Dr. Ali Aslantas carried out as part of the requirements of his Ph.D. thesis at Stevens Institute of Technology. Dr. Aslantas has continued to work in this area at Kafkas University and submitted this paper to International Journal of Molecular Sciences including Professors W. C. Ermler (who is currently at UTSA; e-mail: [email protected]), R. Yazici (who passed away in February 2000) and D. M. Kalyon (e-mail: [email protected]) as co-authors in acknowledgement of their support and supervision during his graduate studies at Stevens, but without their prior knowledge or input.
