Description

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 branchesof chemistry now interface with organometallic chemistry-the study of compounds containing carbon-metal bonds. Organometallic compounds range from species that are so reactive that they only have a transient existence at ambient temperatures to those thatare thermally very stable. They are used extensively in the synthesis of useful compounds on both small and large scales. Industrial processes involving plastics, polymers, electronic materials, and pharmaceuticals all depend on advances in organometallic chemistry.

Key Features

@introbul:Key Features @bul:* 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 * Each volume of Advances in Organometallic Chemistry contains an index, and each chapter includes references

Reviews

@qu:"This volume continues the series exposition of timely and significant advances in the field." @source:--JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY @qu:"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." @source:--JOURNAL OF ORGANOMETALLIC CHEMISTRY @qu:"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." @source:--CHEMISTRY IN AUSTRALIA
