In the published article, in Section 3.1 "Thermal Marangoni flow", there is a typo in the estimation of DT proposed,† it should read DT = Hv/Cp. While this expression is dimensionally correct and gives rise to the definition of the Marangoni number in eqn (23), it does not give realistic values for evaporation-driven cooling. A better approximation would be: where Hv is the latent heat of vaporization, Cp is the specific heat capacity at constant pressure (all defined in Section 3.1), D is the diffusion coefficient of the vapor in air, r is the liquid density, Dc is the difference between the saturated vapor concentration at the interface and in the far field (all defined in Section 2.1) and DT is the thermal diffusivity of the liquid phase. The results and conclusions presented in the published article are unaffected. † The authors would like to thank Jafar Farhadi for pointing out the typo. The Royal Society of Chemistry apologises for these errors and any consequent inconvenience to authors and readers.
