Select type: O-Book


This volume is devoted entirely to inorganic and organometallic stereochemical subjects. Discusses the systematic notations that have been developed to satisfy the needs for a rational and systematic stereochemical nomenclature. Reviews the stereochemical aspects of the changes of bonding at carbon centers induced by metals, either catalytically or stoiciometrically. Also reviews the major achievements in current stereochemical research—the synthesis of asymmetric compounds mediated by transition metals. Discusses the structures of transition metal carbonyl clusters, summarizing recent progress in this expanding area and providing a semiquantitative rationalization of the structures for these clusters.
