The chemical name of the title compound in the paper by Gowda, Foro, Suchetan & Fuess [Acta Cryst. (2010), E66, o187] is corrected.
In the paper by Gowda et al. (2010) , the chemical name given in the Title should be for the trans rather than the cis isomer, i.e. the title should be ‘N,N′-Bis(phenylsulfonyl)fumaramide’.
