This volume reviews how main group organometallic compounds are prepared and their use in organic synthesis. Each chapter concentrates on specific metals and reviews the preparation, reactivity and synthetic use of the organometallic compounds formed for the efficient transformation and synthesis of organic compounds. Classes of reactions reviewed include metallation, Grignard reagents, metal exchange, alkylation and arylation.
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.
