Organometallic Compounds of Low-Coordinate Si, Ge, Sn and Pb: From Phantom Species to Stable Compounds
by:Vladimir Ya. Lee, Akira Sekiguchi
Until recently the low-coordinate compounds of the heavier elements of group 14 were known only as transient, unstable species which were difficult to isolate. However recent developments have led to the stabilisation of these compounds and today heavier group 14 element cations, radicals, anions, carbene analogues, alkene and alkyne analogues and...
Until recently the low-coordinate compounds of the heavier elements of group 14 were known only as transient, unstable species which were difficult to isolate. However recent developments have led to the stabilisation of these compounds and today heavier group 14 element cations, radicals, anions, carbene analogues, alkene and alkyne analogues and aromatics have all been prepared as highly reactive, stable, fully characterizable and readily available organometallic reagents.Organometallic Compounds of Low-Coordinate Si, Ge, Sn and Pb describes the chemistry of this exciting new class of organometallics, with an emphasis on their major similarities and differences with the analogous species in organic chemistry. Topics covered include include the synthesis, structure, reactions and synthetic applications of :Si-, Ge-, Sn and Pb-centered cations, radicals and anionsheavy analogues of carbenes: silylenes, germylenes, stannylenes and plumbylenesheavy analogues of alkenes: disilenes, digermenes, distannenes, diplumbenesheavy analogues of alkynes: disilynes, digermynes, distannynes, diplumbynes, and their valence isomersheteronuclear derivatives: silenes, germenes, stannenes, silagermenes, silastannenes, germastannenesheavy analogues of alkenes of the type: >E14=E13-, >E14=E15-, >E14=E16 [where E13, E14, E15 and E16 are elements of the groups 13, 14, 15 and 16]cyclic compounds (three-, four-, five-, and six-membered rings)heavy analogues of 1,3-dienes, allenes and other cumulenesheavy analogues of aromatic compounds; including a comparison between organometallic and organic aromaticityOrganometallic Compounds of Low-Coordinate Si, Ge, Sn and Pb is an essential guide to this emerging class of organometallic reagents for researchers and students in main group, organometallic, synthetic and silicon chemistry
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
