### ! File ended while scanning use of \@citex.

Hello,

I have an error in my texmaker project.

as the subject describes, I have an error in my main file that contains all the other chapters which are documents themselves.

The error is:

! File ended while scanning use of \@citex.
<inserted text>
\par
l.95 \input{chapter-1}
I suspect you have forgotten a }', causing me
to read past where you wanted me to stop.
I'll try to recover; but if the error is serious,
you'd better type E' or X' now and fix your file.

Below is the main file.

Hi Alessandro,
your example is everything else than minimal. This makes it almost impossible to help you. For example: I don't have your document .cls-file. Since I see no obvious typos in your code, though, I would assume that the problem actually could lie in the file chapter-1.tex.

Please post a real minimal working example and / or give the cls-file as well.

Hello,

where can I find the cls-file?

it is "tudelft-report.cls". This seems to be a custom document class of yours so I can't say where you put it. Use your search function of the file explorer if you don't remember.
