Key Features

  • Covers the preparation of nanostructured composite materials using supercritical fluids
  • Focuses on the intersection of organometallic chemistry and supercritical fluids
  • Addresses the behavior of organometallic compounds in supercritical fluid environments


Organometallic compounds are utilized as reagents in the preparation and processing of advanced nanostructured materials, as catalysts in the production of a wide variety of specialty chemicals and polymers, and as drugs. Supercritical fluid science and technology has a wide variety of applications ranging from extraction of pharmaceutically active compounds to the synthesis of advanced materials. The combination of organometallic chemistry and supercritical fluids has significant potential. This book covers the fundamental aspects and related applications in this rapidly growing area.

Quotes and reviews

"Erkey (Ko<,c> U., Istanbul) explores applications of supercritical fluid that involve using metal complexes consisting of organometallic compounds and chemical complexes. Writing for scientists and engineers who are working with supercritical liquids, or who would like to, he discusses coordination compounds, fundamental aspects of supercritical fluids, the thermodynamics of mixtures of metal complexes with supercritical fluids, the thermodynamics and dynamics of adsorption of metal complexes on surfaces from supercritical solutions, the synthesis of nanostructured composites of metals, extracting metals using supercritical fluids, homogeneous catalysis in supercritical fluids, preparing powders by arrested precipitation processes using reactions of metal complexes in supercritical fluids, and future research needs."--Reference & Research Book News October 2012
