Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry, Fifteen Volume Set is the market-leading resource covering all areas of this critical sub-discipline of chemistry. Divided into 15 clear sections, it provides expert coverage of the synthesis, structures, bonding and reactivity of all organometallic compounds, including the mechanisms of the reactions. Applications of organometallic chemistry, such as the role of these compounds as reagents and catalysts for organometallic transformations, and their participation in bioorganometallic chemistry, is then covered. This is a vibrant area, as illustrated by the fact that the 2001, 2005 and 2010 Nobel prizes in Chemistry are all concerned with organometallic chemistry. This new edition will therefore again provide an invaluable and efficient learning resource for all researchers and educators looking for up-to-date analysis of a particular aspect of organometallic chemistry.

Key Features

  • Comprehensive – CHEC IV will offer a comprehensive review of current heterocycles research and critical insight into the future direction of the field with an emphasis on useful and reliable synthesis and reactions, negating the need for individual searches in the primary literature and across various databases
  • Reputation – The 4th edition will match the impressive reputation of the previous editions as the go-to foundational reference in heterocyclic chemistry
  • Clearly structured - Meticulously organized, articles are split into 15 sections on key topics and clearly cross-referenced to allow students, researchers and professionals to find relevant information quickly and easily
  • Interdisciplinary - chapters written by academics and practitioners from various fields and regions will ensure that the knowledge within is easily understood by and applicable to a large audience


Teachers, research chemists, students, postgrads and chemists working in the fields of inorganic, organic and organometallic chemistry, including materials, organic synthesis, polymer science, and catalysis. Researchers in industries that rely on organometallic chemistry, such as the pharmaceutical industry and the polyolefin industry. Researchers in the biomedical chemistry community

Karsten Meyer

Prof. Dr. Karsten Meyer studied chemistry at the Ruhr-University of Bochum, Germany, and received his Diploma in May 1995. Starting in summer 1995, he performed his PhD thesis work under the direction of Professor Karl Wieghardt at the Max-Planck-Institute in Mülheim / Ruhr (Germany) and received his Ph. D. (Dr. rer. nat, summa cum laude) in January 1998. With a DFG postdoctoral fellowship, Karsten proceeded to gain research experience in the laboratory of Professor Christopher Cummins at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1998 – 2000, MIT, Cambridge, MA, USA). In January 2001, he was appointed to the faculty of the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) as an Assistant Professor and was named an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow in 2004. In 2006 he accepted an offer (C4/W3) to be the Chair of the Institute of Inorganic & General Chemistry at the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Germany.

Dermot O'Hare

Professor O’Hare was appointed to a permanent position and a Septcentenary Tutorial Fellowship at Balliol College, Oxford University in 1990. In 1996 he was named as one of the top 50 leading scientists under 40 in Europe by the Institüt de France, Académie des Sciences, and was awarded the Sir Edward Frankland Fellowship by the Royal Society of Chemistry in 1996/97, and became Professor in 1998. In 2012, Dermot was instrumental in creating the SCG-Oxford Centre of Excellence for Chemistry (CoE) on which he serves as the Director. In 2016 he was awarded the RSC Tilden for his creative work on the synthesis, reactivity and advanced characterisation of molecular inorganic compounds and materials spanning organometallic chemistry to framework and layered materials. His interests include exploratory synthetic organometallic chemistry, intercalation chemistry, time-resolved, in situ diffraction studies and the synthesis of meso- and microporous solids.
