This book examines the occurrence, toxicity, analysis and typical concentrations of organometallic compounds in various environmental samples. These include aqueous and effluent, crop and plant, soil and sediments, atmospheric and living organisms in a detailed and systematic manner. A knowledge of the chemical structure and concentration of organometallic compounds throughout the ecosystem is important in working out the pathways and mechanisms by which metals distribute themselves throughout the environment. The principal elements discussed are mercury, lead, tin and arsenic. Other organometallic compounds, including cadmium, antimony, selenium, germanium, manganese, copper and nickel, which occur in the environment less frequently and at lower concentrations are also discussed. Contents * Introduction * Concentrations of Organometallic Compounds in the Ecosystems * Toxic Effects of Organometallic Compounds * Toxicity Testing * Bioaccumulation Processes * Analysis of Organometallic Compounds in the Environment Occurrence and Analysis of Organometallic Compounds in the Environment is essential reading for all organometallic and analytical chemists, environmentalists, and toxicologists working in the field.

Since its introduction into the armoury of the analytical chemist approximately two decades ago the technique of gas chroma tography has found very extensive applications in the analysis of most types of organic compounds. One of the few remaining limitations of the technique when applied to such compounds, namely the analysis of very highly boiling and or thermally unstable substances, has been overcome in many instances by the introduction of techniques such as silation for the conversion of sample components to lower boiling or more stable substances which can be gas chromatographed at reasonably low temperatures. All of this has been extensively dealt with in many books published during recent years dealing with the theory and practice of applying gas chromatography to the analysis and preparative separation of organic compounds. In parallel with these developments there has occurred, particu larly over the past decade, a growing interest in the application of gas chromatography to the analysis of organometallic compounds. Indeed, for many types of organometallic compounds, gas chromatography is the analytical method of choice particularly, as so often happens, when the sample is a mixture. To the author's knowledge no complete review exists of the published work in this very interesting new field; a situation it is hoped the present volume will rectify.

This is the first modern book to treat inorganic and organometallic mass spectrometry simultaneously. It is textbook and handbook in one; as a textbook it introduces the techniques and gives hints on how to apply the various techniques, as a handbook it lists all available ionization techniques for just about any given compound. The book also includes non-mathematical explanations of how modern MS instruments work Mass Spectrometry of Inorganic and Organometallic Compounds will inspire the synthetic inorganic and organometallic chemist with the confidence to apply some of the new techniques to their characterization problems.

Organometallic chemistry is an interdisciplinary science which continues to grow at a rapid pace. Although there is continued interest in synthetic and structural studies the last decade has seen a growing interest in the potential of organometallic chemistry to provide answers to problems in catalysis synthetic organic chemistry and also in the development of new materials. This Specialist Periodical Report aims to reflect these current interests reviewing progress in theoretical organometallic chemistry, main group chemistry, the lanthanides and all aspects of transition metal chemistry. Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage of progress in the major areas of chemical research. Written by experts in their specialist fields the series creates a unique service for the active research chemist, supplying regular critical in-depth accounts of progress in particular areas of chemistry. For over 80 years the Royal Society of Chemistry and its predecessor, the Chemical Society, have been publishing reports charting developments in chemistry, which originally took the form of Annual Reports. However, by 1967 the whole spectrum of chemistry could no longer be contained within one volume and the series Specialist Periodical Reports was born. The Annual Reports themselves still existed but were divided into two, and subsequently three, volumes covering Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistry. For more general coverage of the highlights in chemistry they remain a 'must'. Since that time the SPR series has altered according to the fluctuating degree of activity in various fields of chemistry. Some titles have remained unchanged, while others have altered their emphasis along with their titles; some have been combined under a new name whereas others have had to be discontinued. The current list of Specialist Periodical Reports can be seen on the inside flap of this volume.
