Upon a re-analysis of the data, there were errors in the p-values reported in Table 1 and Table 2. The revised p-values for Tables 1 and 2 are as follows:

Table 1 Individual p-values: TG: 0.910 ; DR: 0.434; TS: 0.79; AD: 0.539; SG: 0.089. Aggregated p-value of 0.512

Table 2 Individual p-values: MG: 0.021; LT: 0.0004; KF: 0.2891; KM: 1.54 10-5; NH: 0.0004; CC: 0.146; AM: 0.0034; CS: 0.0063; JB: 0.0004; VC: 0.146; AD: 0.0385. Aggregate probability : < 2.2 10-16.

The results with acetophenone are indistinguishable from chance; those with cyclopentadecanone are highly statistically significant. Those were the main findings of the article and they remain unchanged by the modifications noted above.

In addition, the funding source in the acknowledgments section was incompletely specified. The full description of funding sources is as follows:
