Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry III

Volume 3: Groups 13-15

Edited by

  • Catherine Housecroft, University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland

This volume reviews the preparation, properties, reactions and special applications of Boron, Aluminum, Gallium, Indium, Thallium, Silicon, Germanium, Tin, Lead, Arsenic, Antimony, and Bismuth organometallic compounds. Each chapter examines the complexes formed between the metals and specific ligands and where relevant important applications of these compounds. It provides a clear and comprehensive overview of developments since 1993 and attempts to predict trends in the field over the next ten years. Like its predecessors, COMC (1982) and COMC-II (1995), this new work is the essential reference text for any chemist or technologist who needs to use or apply organometallic compounds.
