Corrigendum to “A Theoretical Study on the Inclusion of Fe, Cu, and Zn in Illite Clays”
The article titled “A Theoretical Study on the Inclusion of Fe, Cu, and Zn in Illite Clays”  was found to contain material from previously published articles in the third paragraph of Introduction without citation as follows: (i)Chang et al. : “Soil contamination by heavy metals (As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Pb, and Zn) is one of the major environmental problems raising critical concerns for both human health and ecosystems due to their carcinogenic and mutagenic effects on animals and humans.”(ii)Ali et al. : “can be used for the removal of heavy metals and radionuclides as well as for organic pollutants such as polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, polychlorinated biphenyls, and pesticides.”(iii)Álvarez-Mateos et al. : “The clean-up of most of these soils is mandatory for the area to be reclaimed and to minimize the entry of potentially toxic elements into the food chain.”
The authors do not agree to the corrigendum.
