Contents:
Introduction. -- General properties of organometallic complexes. -- Metal alkyls, aryls, and hydrides and related ơ-bonded ligands. -- Carbonyls, phosphine complexes, and liquid substitution reactions. -- Complexes of [pi]-bound ligands. -- Oxidative addition and reductive elimination. -- Insertion and elimination. -- Nucleophilic and electrophilic addition and abstraction. -- Homogeneous catalysis. -- Physical methods in organometallic chemistry. -- Metal-ligand multiple bonds. -- Applications of organometallic chemistry. -- Clusters and the metal-metal bond. -- Applications to organic synthesis. -- Paramagnetic, high-oxidation-state, and high-coordination-number complexes. -- Bioorganometallic chemistry. -- Useful texts on allied topics. -- Major reaction types. -- Solutions to problems.
Review: "The Organometallic Chemistry of the Transition Metals, Fourth Edition is an unparalleled pedagogic resource, appropriate as a main text for courses in inorganic chemistry and organometallic chemistry, and as a supplementary text for courses in bioinorganic chemistry. It is also a valuable working reference for professional chemists who need to become better acquainted with the subject."--BOOK JACKET.

CHOICE Review

Each edition of this organometallics book by Crabtree (Yale Univ.) keeps getting better. Many sections have been rewritten and new materials included, such as coupling reactions, C-F bond activation, paramagnetic organometallics, and surface organometallic chemistry. A few new problems have been added to the problem sets, a highlight of the book. Solutions to the problems offer explanations that are very helpful to students. The best additions (compared to the 1st ed., 1988) are the subtitles within each section of each chapter, which makes the book useful as a resource. The introduction and chapter on general properties are well written and offer an excellent overview. Three chapters illustrate sigma-bonded and pi-bonded ligands and their reactions. Details of the major types of reaction mechanisms appear in the chapters on oxidative addition and reductive elimination, insertion and elimination, and nucleophilic/electrophilic addition and abstraction. There is a practical chapter on homogeneous catalysis and an especially good one on physical methods. The remaining chapters offer practical applications of organometallics to carbenes and polymerization, metal-metal bonds, organic synthesis, oxidation complexes, and bioorganometallic chemistry. Chapters are well illustrated with numerous references to the literature. Useful for undergraduate and graduate students. W. H. Hohman Marietta College
