It should be noted that the text "Applied force on an individual molecule is given by ∫ = ΔPA/n, where ΔP is the desired hydrostatic pressure, A is the area of the membrane, and n is the total number of molecules in the simulation system" on page 22212 of the published paper is not accurate. It should be ". . ., and n is the total number of molecules to which forces are applied in the simulation system". The force is applied to all water molecules and ions to produce osmotic pressure, and n is the total number of water molecules and ions; the atoms in the MoS2 membrane are not calculated. In addition, ref. 47 was cited in the paper, which is not correct. In actuality, the new reference given here as ref. 1 is more appropriate. The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for these errors and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers..
