Correction to Elemental Sulphur Concentrations
The concentration of elemental sulphur used in the experiments was incorrectly reported as “30 mM elemental sulphur” instead of “10 mM elemental sulphur”, due to an error in calculation and converting between mg to mM (see the Fe Sulphide Transformation Sequence section in the main article, also the Methods, Pyrite synthesis section and Table S-1 in the Supplementary Information). The corrected text is shown below. The corrected Supplementary Information is also available for download.
Fe Sulphide Transformation Sequence
Iron sulphides were synthesised in the presence of 3 mM Fe2+, 6 mM Na2S and 10 mM elemental sulphur (S0) in 50 mM HEPES buffer (pH 7). Two sets of experiments were performed and termed Set-1 (97 % N2, 3 % H2 headspace) and Set-2 (100 % N2), respectively (details in SI Methods, Table S-1).
In the first paragraph of ‘Pyrite synthesis’ (Methods) in the Supplementary Information, the reagents were incorrectly written to include “30 mM S0 ” instead of “10 mM S0” in the following sentence, now corrected:
“The final mixture contained approximately 3 mM Fe, 6 mM Na2S, 10 mM S0 and either 30 μM (high-metal) or 30 nM trace metals (low-metal experiments).”
In Table S-1 the cells describing the synthesis conditions for “This study” on pages 7-9 have also been corrected to give 10 mM S0.
