In the Report Proton-catalyzed, silane-fueled Friedel-Crafts coupling of fluoroarenes, the legend of Fig. 2 should read “B98/DZ+(2df,pd) calculated transition state (TS), including effects of chlorobenzene solvent, for fluorine abstraction from 1-(2-fluorophenyl)-naphthalene (calculated Ea = 21.6 kcal mol–1; transition-state interatomic lengths, C–F = 2.55 Å, C–C = 2.86 Å).” The related sentence in the penultimate paragraph of text should read “The structural and activation parameters predicted by the quantum chemical model (calculated Ea = 21.6 kcal mol–1; transition-state interatomic lengths, C–F = 2.55 Å, C–C = 2.86 Å) fit well with the experimental findings (34).” Similar corrections have been made in the supplemental materials. The overall conclusions of the study remain unchanged.
