This book is an essential reference work for the academic and industrial chemists and will provide up-to-date material at the cutting edge of chemistry research.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 ambient temperatures 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.

Reviews

"This volume continues the series' exposition of timely and significant advances in the field."
Praise for the Series, --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."
