Erratum to: Surface grafting of bamboo fibers with 1,2-epoxy-4-vinylcyclohexane for reinforcing unsaturated polyester

Qiu (&) College of Transportation and Civil Engineering, Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University , Fuzhou 350108 , People's Republic of China In the original publication of the article, an error occurred in the calculation of crystallinity index (CrI) of bamboo fibers (BFs) based on the Segal method. The CrI values of untreated and 3 wt% EVC-treated BFs were calculated from the following equation: - CrI ¼ ½ðI200 IAmorphÞ=I200 100 where I200 and IAmorph are the maximum intensity of the (200) lattice diffraction and the diffraction at 18 of 2h degree, respectively. The authors had mistakenly defined IAmorph as the intensity of the peak at 2h = 16 instead of the minimum intensity at 2h = 18 contributed by amorphous phase. Another error is that the peak at 2h = 16 was identified as the (001) reflection in Fig. 4 of the original publication. The peak should be attributed to the merged reflection of (1-10) and (110) patterns. Based on the corrected diffraction patterns, the CrI values of untreated and 3 wt% EVC-treated BFs were calculated to be 64.01 and 60.66%, respectively. The XRD curves of BFs with a baseline and corrected peak attribution are provided in Fig. 4 in this Erratum. Therefore, in the part ‘‘Crystallization of BFs’’ of ‘‘Results and discussion’’ section: (1) The sentences ‘‘The 2h values of around 16 and 22.5 … is sharp and intensive. These reflections are … in the BFs, respectively.’’ shall be deleted. (2) The sentence ‘‘the crystallinity index of the fibers slightly decreased from 42.46 to 39.53% after fiber treatment.’’ shall be renewed with the corrected CrI values of untreated (64.01%) and 3 wt% EVC-treated BFs (60.66%). (3) The sentence ‘‘Thus, the EVC treatment did not cause obvious strength deterioration of fiber cell wall.’’ shall be deleted.
