Author Correction: Silica accelerates the selective hydrogenation of CO2 to methanol on cobalt catalysts

Correction to: Nature Communications, published online 25 February 2020.

The original version of this Article contained incorrect calculation of methanol productivity according to the experimental data (all the experimental data of CO2 conversion and methanol selectivity are correct). The calculated data are incorrectly included in Fig. 2b, Supplementary Fig. 36, and Supplementary Table 3. These data have been corrected in both the PDF and HTML versions of the Article.
