"...the book comes close to something like the pocket-version of comprehensive organometallic chemistry covering 20 metals with a slight emphasis on applications..." (Journal Fur Praktische Chemie, Vol. 341, No. 2, 1999)
From the Publisher
Organometallic Compounds are molecules consisting of an organic molecular with one or more metallic elements incorporated into their structure. As the properties of these compounds become apparent, their applications continue to grow to include reagents, catalysts, and the production of dyes, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and chemotherapy drugs. This book provides as overview of nine representative main group organometallic compounds and eleven transition metal organometallic compounds. Each review contains the history of the compound's applications and the properties of each metallic element.
