In our papers, Walmsley et al. (2004) and Flower et al. (2004), the captions to the tables in the Appendices A were inexact with respect to the reactions involving grains. We stated (i) that the parameters $\alpha $, $\beta $, and $\gamma $ defined the rate coefficients k (cm3 s-1) at temperature T (K) through the relation k = J $(a_g, T)\gamma (T/300)^{\alpha } {\rm exp}(-\beta /T)$, where J allowed for Coulomb focusing in reactions of positive ions and negatively charged grains (Draine & Sutin 1987, Eq. (3.4)); and (ii) that a grain radius ag = 0.1 $\mu $m was adopted in the table. In fact, the tabulated values of $\gamma $ were determined for a size distribution following the Mathis et al. (1977) power law, with limits $0.01 \le a_g \le 0.3$ $\mu $m. The tabulated value of $\gamma $ was multiplied by (ag/0.02)2 within our program, to obtain the grain cross section corresponding to the adopted value of ag = 0.1 $\mu $m. (The mean radius for the size distribution of Mathis et al. (1977) is 0.02 $\mu $m.) Thus, the tabulated values of $\gamma $ for reactions between ions and grains should be increased by a factor of 25 to correspond to the numbers actually used in our models, for a grain size ag = 0.1 $\mu $m.
