This volume reviews the preparation, properties, reactions and special applications of Boron, Aluminum, Gallium, Indium, Thallium, Silicon, Germanium, Tin, Lead, Arsenic, Antimony, and Bismuth organometallic compounds. Each chapter examines the complexes formed between the metals and specific ligands and where relevant important applications of these compounds. It provides a clear and comprehensive overview of developments since 1993 and attempts to predict trends in the field over the next ten years. Like its predecessors, COMC (1982) and COMC-II (1995), this new work is the essential reference text for any chemist or technologist who needs to use or apply organometallic compounds.
Suitable for organic and inorganic chemists researchers and students in the fields of materials science and nanoscience. Practitioners working in industry who need to use or apply organometallic compounds.
