In order to present a comprehensive view of the subject, it provides broad coverage of organometallic chemistry itself. The catalysis section includes the challenging activation and fictionalization of the main classes of hydrocarbons and the industrially crucial heterogeneous catalysis.
Summaries and exercises are provides at the end of each chapter, and the answers to these exercises can be found at the back of the book. Beginners in inorganic, organic and organometallic chemistry, as well as advanced scholars and chemists from academia and industry will find much value in this title.
The book will benefit a wide range of researchers involved in organometallic chemistry, including synthetic protocols, mechanistic studies, and practical applications. Contains contributions from leading authorities in the field of organometallic chemistry Covers topics in organometallic synthesis, reactions, mechanisms, homogeneous catalysis, and more Informs and updates readers on all the latest developments in the field Carefully edited to provide easy-to-read material.
For this volume, the critical reviews cover topics such as the activation of "inert" carbon-hydrogen bonds, ligand design and organometallic radical species. For example, Charlie O'Hara discusses how mixed-metal compounds may perform the highly selective activation of C-H bonds and, in particular, how synergic relationships between various metals are crucial to this approach.
This article focuses on the preparation of these ligands and also how they may be applied in various catalytic applications. Bas De Bruin reports on how ligand radical reactivity can be employed in synthetic organometallic chemistry and catalysis to achieve selectivity in radical-type transformations.
Modern Inorganic Synthetic Chemistry
As well as highlighting ligand-centered radical transformations in open-shell transition metals, an overview of the catalytic mechanism of Co II -catalysed olefin cyclopropanation is given, showing that enzyme-like cooperative metal-ligand-radical reactivity is no longer limited to real enzymes. Valuable and informative comprehensive reviews in the field of organometallic chemistry are also covered in this volume.
For example, organolithium and organocuprate chemistry are reviewed by Joanna Haywood and Andrew Wheatley; aspects in Group 2 Be-Ba and Group 12 Zn-Hg compounds by Robert Less, Rebecca Melen and Dominic Wright; metal clusters by Mark Humphrey and Marie Cifuentes; and recent developments in the chemistry of the elements of Group 14 - focusing on low-coordination number compounds by Richard Layfield.
This volume therefore covers many synthetic and applied aspects of modern organometallic chemistry which ought to be of interest to inorganic, organic and applied catalysis fields.
Almost all branchesof chemistry now interface with organometallic chemistry--the study of compounds containing carbon-metal bonds. Organometallic compounds range from species which are so reactive that they only have a transient existence at ambient temperatures to species which are thermally very stable.
Organometallics are used extensively in the synthesis of useful compounds on both large and small scales. Industrial processes involving plastics, polymers, electronic materials, and pharmaceuticals all depend on advancements in organometallic chemistry. 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.

As intended, this approach leads either to reviews covering a specific uncommon class of organometallic compounds or to overviews which relate uncommon physical properties with various classes of organometallic compounds. The contributions are streamlined thus onto two main axes - unusual properties reflecting structures and bonding situations, on the one hand, and uncommon structural features or structure-reactivity relationships, on the other.
Extensive cross-referencing of useful information is provided, making this volume accessible for people working in rather different areas of organometallic chemistry. This book presents case studies at the interface of these overlapping interests.
The term "e;Metal"e; is defined deliberately broadly in this context and may include elements, such as silicon or boron, which are not metallic but are considered to be metalloids. Almost all branches of chemistry and material science now interface with organometallic chemistry.
Organometallics find practical uses in stoichiometric and catalytic processes, especially processes involving carbon monoxide and alkene-derived polymers. Organometallic OM chemistry is the study of compounds containing, and reactions involving, metal-carbon bonds.
The metal-carbon bond may be transient or temporary, but if one exists during a reaction or in a compound of interest, we're squarely in the domain of organometallic chemistry. Despite the denotational importance of the M-C bond, bonds between metals and the other common elements of organic chemistry also appear in OM chemistry: metal-nitrogen, metal-oxygen, metal-halogen, and even metal-hydrogen bonds all play a role. Metals cover a vast swath of the periodic table and include the alkali metals group 1 , alkali earth metals group 2 , transition metals groups , the main group metals groups , "e;under the stairs"e; , and the lanthanides and actinides.
The principal idea of this book is to offer a comprehensive coverage of unconventional and thought-provoking topics in organometallic chemistry.
It also supplies practical information about reaction mechanisms, along with the descriptions of contemporary applications to organic synthesis, organized by mechanism and kinetic. It will serve as a valuable reference tool for students and professional of organic and post organic chemistry, who need to become better acquainted with the subject.
