Organometallic Chemistry of Titanium, Zirconium, and Hafnium covers the chemistry of organic complexes of titanium, zirconium, and hafnium having metal-to-carbon linkage. This book is organized into eight chapters that consider the significant developments in delineating the chemistry of these metal derivatives.
This book starts with a description of the stability and bonding in cyclopentadienyl derivatives of the metals, based on the thermodynamic and spectroscopic evidence. The remaining chapters discuss the preparation and reactions of titanium-, zirconium-, and hafnium-bonded organic compounds. These chapters also look into the synthetic difficulties encountered from the reactions and preparation of these compounds. The stabilization and adduct formation of these metal complexes are also explored.
Organic chemists and organic chemistry researchers and students will find this book invaluable.
