Organometallic Chemistry presents the synthesis and reactions of metal, particularly nickel, complexes of these novel ring systems. This book .reviews the characteristic species present in organolithium compounds under several conditions. Organized into seven chapters, this book begins with an overview of the mode of biosynthesis of the coenzyme that can be partially simulated in the laboratory. This text then presents a brief survey of the biochemical reactions controlled by the coenzyme. Other chapters consider the special molecular geometry of metallocenes, which offers several stereochemical problems. This book discusses as well the formation of free radicals from organotin compounds by radical breakdown of various bonds around the tin atom. The final chapter deals with the reactions of metal carbonyl clusters that are classified in photolysis, reduction, nucleophilic attack, and oxidation and reactions with electrophilic reagents. This book is a valuable resource for chemists, biochemists, stereochemists, scientists, students, and research workers.
