This volume reviews the preparation, properties, reactions and special applications of group 9 organometallic compounds. Each chapter examines the clusters and complexes formed between the metals Iron, Ruthenium and Osmium and specific ligands. 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.

Key Features
