This succinct text outlines the main classes of transition metal organometallic complexes and introduces the reader to the chemistry of compounds with metal-carbon s-bonds: metal carbonyls, metal alkyls, and metal alkylidenes and alkylidnes. The synthetic methods leading to each class ofcompounds are illustrated with pertinent examples, followed by the discussion of characteristic structures and reactivity patterns. The aim is to allow undergraduate students a quick overview over this area of chemistry. Highlights and excursions stress general principles and relate the materialto specific applications such as catalytic processes.
Manfred Bochmann is at University of East Anglia, Norwich.

Editorial Reviews

`Few contemporary books in introductory organometallic chemistry offer so much for such a trivial financial outlay ... it is written in an exceptionally lucid style with excellent diagrams and reaction schemes, and should be especially attractive to undergraduate students at the very lowprice. I strongly recommend the book as a suitable first text for students in this area of chemistry.'A.M. Arthurs, Chemistry in Britain, January
