Organosilicon compounds are key organometallic compounds (R-Si) which have many uses in materials science and in metallurgy. Their applications include the synthesis of sugars and in the synthesis of organic compounds for the pharmaceutical industry. This volume will contain both updated chapters on key topics included in the original volumes as well as a number of new chapters reflecting the rapid developments made in silicon chemistry and its applications to organometallic chemistry, materials science, and semiconductors, over the last five years. As for the majority of volumes in this series, chapters will be prepared by leading scientists in the field.

This volume is now available in electronic format from Books Online.
