Organometallic Chemistry

Organometallic chemistry is the study of chemical compounds containing at least one bond between a carbon atom of an organic compound and a metal. Organometallic chemistry combines aspects of inorganic chemistry also known as bioinorganic chemistry and organic chemistry. Organometallic compounds are widely used in homogeneous catalysis. Organometallic compounds are distinguished by the prefix "organo-" e.g. organopalladium compounds and Organometallic catalysis. Examples of such organometallic compounds include all Gilman reagents, which contain lithium and copper. Tetracarbonyl nickel, and ferrocene are examples of organometallic compounds containing transition metals which are related to f-block chemistry. The term "metalorganics" usually refers to metal-containing compounds lacking direct metal-carbon bonds but which contain organic ligands. Metal beta-diketonates, alkoxides, and dialkylamides are representative members of this class. In addition to the traditional metals, undergo organic transformation eg; lanthanides, actinides, and semimetals, trace elements such as boron, silicon, arsenic, and selenium are considered to form organometallic compounds, e.g. organoborane compounds such as triethylborane. Few organometalics Period 2 elements: organolithium chemistry, organoberyllium chemistry, organoborane chemistry, Period 3 elements: organomagnesium chemistry, organoaluminum chemistry, organosilicon chemistry.
