Applications of Organometallic Compounds Iwao Omae Omae Research Laboratories, Japan Applications of Organometallic Compounds is a comprehensive and in-depth survey of all recent developments in organometallic chemistry. Chapter by chapter, the author discusses 20 of the most common elements used in organometallic chemistry. Each chapter describes the synthesis of the organometallic compounds of the element, their structure and their importance in organic transformations. Applications of Organometallic Compounds:
* Combines a full background to the topic with comprehensive organic syntheses.
* Contains a historical overview of organometallic chemistry.
* Discusses the possible side reactions that are caused by impurities in each organometallic reagent.
* Includes the basic coordination chemistry of organometallics.
* Contains hundreds of reaction examples and extensive referencing.
The book is intended to be an introduction to organometallic chemistry for research chemists in organic, natural product and pharmaceutical synthetic chemistry.
