This book examines the occurrence, toxicity, analysis and typicalconcentrations of organometallic compounds in various environmentalsamples. These include aqueous and effluent, crop and plant, soiland sediments, atmospheric and living organisms in a detailed andsystematic manner. A knowledge of the chemical structure andconcentration of organometallic compounds throughout the ecosystemis important in working out the pathways and mechanisms by whichmetals distribute themselves throughout the environment. Theprincipal elements discussed are mercury, lead, tin and arsenic.Other organometallic compounds, including cadmium, antimony,selenium, germanium, manganese, copper and nickel, which occur inthe environment less frequently and at lower concentrations arealso discussed. Contents * Introduction * Concentrations of Organometallic Compounds in theEcosystems * Toxic Effects of Organometallic Compounds * Toxicity Testing * Bioaccumulation Processes * Analysis of Organometallic Compounds in the Environment Occurrence and Analysis of Organometallic Compounds in theEnvironment is essential reading for all organometallic andanalytical chemists, environmentalists, and toxicologists workingin 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.

Applications of Organometallic Compounds Iwao Omae Omae Research Laboratories, Japan Applications of Organometallic Compounds is a comprehensive and in-depth survey of all recent developments in organometallic chemistry. Chapter by chapter, the author discusses 20 of the most common elements used in organometallic chemistry. Each chapter describes the synthesis of the organometallic compounds of the element, their structure and their importance in organic transformations. Applications of Organometallic Compounds: * Combines a full background to the topic with comprehensive organic syntheses. * Contains a historical overview of organometallic chemistry. * Discusses the possible side reactions that are caused by impurities in each organometallic reagent. * Includes the basic coordination chemistry of organometallics. * Contains hundreds of reaction examples and extensive referencing. The book is intended to be an introduction to organometallic chemistry for research chemists in organic, natural product and pharmaceutical synthetic chemistry.
