The authors became aware of a mistake in Figure 3 of the above-mentioned manuscript. The y-axis of the Figure was incorrectly labelled “QDSC (J g−1)” and should thus be labelled “QDSC (cal g−1)”. A new Figure 3 is shown below. Additionally, during production of the graphic, the data point labelled “CAN” was placed with a y-value of 569 cal g−1 rather than the correct value of 677 cal g−1. This error arose during conversion of the J g−1 measured by the DSC instrument to cal g−1 for application in the Yoshida correlation equations, in which a typo of 2383 J g−1 was used instead of 2833 J g−1. The correct cal g−1 value of 677 cal g−1 appears in Table 1 and in the text, so the error is only present in Figure 3. This correction does not alter in any way the analysis and conclusions drawn in the article. The authors apologize for this error and for any inconvenience caused. Figure (Figure presented.) Yoshida plot of oxidants which exhibited exotherms under scDSC analysis. All data was acquired with a heating rate of 5 °C min−1. Oxidants above the blue line are considered potentially impact sensitive, with those above the orange line potentially explosive. Thresholds used are 25 % lower than the original Yoshida thresholds to provide a more conservative prediction as recommended by Sperry et al.[19b].
