Significant modulation of Poisson's ratio of IV-VI semiconductor monolayers in an electric field was claimed to be discovered by first-principles calculations in The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, 2021, 12, 3217-3223. We show that these results are not correct because of improper modeling of the electric field.
