Oxford Chemistry Primers #12: Organometallics 1: Complexes with Transition Metal-Carbon S-Bondsby Manfred Bochmann
Synopses & Reviews
The field of organometallic chemistry has seen explosive growth over the last forty years. On a fundamental level, new structural and bonding concepts have been discovered, while applications range from catalysis to new synthetic methods. This succinct text outlines the main classes of transition metal organometallic complexes and introduces the reader to the chemistry of compounds with metal-carbon bonds: metal carbonyls, metal alkyls, and metal alkylidenes and alkylidynes. The synthetic methods leading to each class of compounds are illustrated with pertinent examples, followed by the discussion of characteristic structures and reactivity patterns. The book stresses general principles and relates the material to specific applications such as catalytic processes. This book is ideal for supplying a quick overview of the discipline to students of chemistry.
This series of short texts provides accessible accounts of a range of essential topics in chemistry. Written with the needs of the student in mind, the Oxford Chemistry Primers offer just the right level of detail for undergraduate study, and will be invaluable as a source of material commonly presented in lecture courses yet not adequately covered in existing texts. All the basic principles and facts in a particular area are presented in a clear and straightforward style, to produce concise yet comprehensive accounts of topics covered in both core and specialist courses. The interaction of transition metals with unsaturated organic molecules has led to fundamental insights in the nature of the chemical bond which, in turn, have provided the basis of important present-day applications such as transition metal mediated synthesis or homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis. This slim volume outlines the chemistry and discusses the bonding in some of the most important classes of organometallic compounds: the complexes of transition metals with (pi)-ligands such as alkenes, alkynes, arenes, and cyclopentadienyl and allyl ligands. The material covered follows on from Organometallics 1 which covers the chemistry of complexes with metal-carbon (sigma)-bonds. Synthetic and reactivity aspects of each class of compounds are illustrated with pertinent examples from the recent chemical literature. Highlighted excursions relate the fundamental chemistry to current synthetic or catalytic applications.
