The authors would like to correct the following statement within section 'Dependence of k nf on other parameters' in our published paper [1]:

However, based on experimental data, Timofeeva et al. [53] reported that knf increases with the incensement of nanoparticle diameter for SiC-water nanofluid which can be explained by the change of Kapitza resistance contribution for particles with different diameters and interface areas.
