Organometallics full notes for csir NET & GATE .PDFOur aim in this NOTES is to introduce one of the important disciplines of inorganic chemistry which
bridges the organic compounds with main group and transition elements; organometallic chemistry.
Organometallic chemistry is defined as the chemistry of chemical compounds containing one or more
metal—carbon bonds which are essentially polar (Mδ+—Cδ-) in nature. To begin with it is necessary to
understand the bonding concepts that explain the structures of both main group and transition
elements. The objectives of first few lecture notes are to give some insight into the various metal—ligand
interactions that would later help in planning the synthesis and also eventually looking into their
electronic and kinetic stability. The course is divided into four major sections and the first section deals
The organometallic chemistry of main group and transition elements,
respectively, while the fourth section would be devoted to applications of organometallic compounds
with special emphasis to catalysis.
