The field of organometallic chemistry has seen explosive growth over the last forty years. On a fundamental level, new structural and bonding concepts have been discovered, while applications range from catalysis to new synthetic methods. This succinct text outlines the main classes of transition metal organometallic complexes and introduces the reader to the chemistry of compounds with metal-carbon bonds: metal carbonyls, metal alkyls, and metal alkylidenes and alkylidynes. The synthetic methods leading to each class of compounds are illustrated with pertinent examples, followed by the discussion of characteristic structures and reactivity patterns. The book stresses general principles and relates the material to specific applications such as catalytic processes. This book is ideal for supplying a quick overview of the discipline to students of chemistry.

Industry Reviews

'a solid, basic course for transition metal organic chemistry ... The book should be an 'aperitif' for every new student and stimulate more intensive study of the subject matter' Nachrichten aus Chemie Tecknik und laboratorium, Vol. 42, No. 12 (Dec. 1994) `The treatment is straightforward, easy to read, but not patronising. It should be a useful resource for many undergraduate courses.' Journal of Organometallic Chemistry 492 (1995) `These two little volumes fulfil a need that has not yet been met by other books. Students, at least in the UK, often no longer have the funds to buy as many text books as one might desire, and these books appear to achieve comprehensiveness and cheapness at the same time. They are to be welcomed.' Journal of Organometallic Chemistry 492 (1995) `Ces deux ouvrages s'adressent aux etudiants de deuxieme et troisieme cycles ainsi qu'aux chimistes recherchant un cours condense de chimie organometallique.' La Recherche, No. 271, Decembre 1994 `Few contemporary books in introductory organometallic chemistry offer so much for such a trivial financial outlay ... it is written in an exceptionally lucid style with excellent diagrams and reaction schemes, and should be especially attractive to undergraduate students at the very low price. I strongly recommend the book as a suitable first text for students in this area of chemistry.' A.M. Arthurs, Chemistry in Britain, January
