Organosilicon Compounds: From Theory to Synthesis to Applications provides a comprehensive overview of this important area of organic and organometallic chemistry, dealing with compounds containing carbon–silicon bonds.
This field, which includes compounds which are widely encountered in commercial products, such as in the fabrication of sealants, adhesives, and coatings, has seen many milestone discoveries reported during the last few years.
Beginning with the theoretical aspects of organosilicon compounds’ structure and bonding, the book then explores their synthetic aspects, including main group element organosilicon compounds, transition metal complexes, silicon cages and clusters, reactive intermediates, silaaromatics, multiple bonds to silicon, and more.
Next, readers will find valuable sections that explore physical and chemical properties, X-ray crystallography, 29Si NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and other methods. Finally, the work delves into applications for industrial uses and in related fields, such as polymers, material science, nanotechnology, bioorganics, and medicinal silicon chemistry.
- Features valuable contributions from prominent experts that cover both fundamental (theoretical, synthetic, physico-chemical) and applied (material science, applications) aspects of modern organosilicon chemistry
- Covers important breakthroughs in the field, along with the historically significant achievements of the past
- Includes applied information for a wide range of specialists, from junior and senior researchers (from both academia and industry)
- Ideal reference for those working in organometallic, organosilicon, main group element, transition metal, and industrial silicon chemistry, as well as those from interdisciplinary fields, such as polymer, material science, and nanotechnology
