This widely-acclaimed serial contains authoritative reviews that address all aspects of organometallic chemistry, a field which has expanded enormously since the publication of Volume 1 in 1964. Almost all branches of chemistry and material science now interface with organometallic chemistry--the study of compounds containing carbon-metal bonds. Organometallic compounds range from species which are so reactive that they only have a transient existence at ambienttemperatures to species which are thermally very stable. Organometallics are used extensively in the synthesis of useful compounds on both large and small scales. Industrial processes involving plastics, polymers, electronic materials, and pharmaceuticals all depend on advancements in organometallic chemistry.
This book is an essential reference work for the academic and industrial chemist and will provide up-to-date material at the cutting edge of chemistry research.
Key Features
* In basic research, organometallics have contributed "inter alia" to:
* Metal cluster chemistry
* Surface chemistry
* The stabilization of highly reactive species by metal coordination
* Chiral synthesis
* The formulation of multiple bonds between carbon and the other elements and between the elements themselves
* Metal organic compounds of calcium, strontium, and barium in chemical vapor deposition
* 17- and 19-electron organometallic complexes
* Halocarbonyl complexes of molybdenum and tungsten
* Substituent effects in metallacene chemistry

Industry Reviews

"This volume continues the series exposition of timely and significant advances in the field." --JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY

"This is a very interesting collection of reviews, maintaining the expected standard of this meritorious series, which is now an obligatory purchase of all chemistry libraries attached to academic and industrial research laboratories." --JOURNAL OF ORGANOMETALLIC CHEMISTRY

"The volume maintains the traditional high standard of the series and ought to be considered essential for those involved in organo-transition metal chemistry research." --CHEMISTRY IN AUSTRALIA
