The significance of organometallic chemistry has constantly increased during the second half of this century. Within this area of research the organotin chemistry reigns as one of the most important branches. The decisive reason for this development has been the wide range of potential application of these compounds in industry, technology, and agriculture. The present volume continues the series on Organotin Compounds, which first appeared in 1975 and now comprises a collection of sixteen volumes. The overall plan of the series has been given in the preface of Volume 1. This volume concludes the description of the mononuclear organotin compounds with tin-oxygen bonds. Treatment of organotin compounds with tin-sulfur, -selenium, and -tellurium bonds appeared earlier in the Volumes 9 and 10. Volume 17 describes in detail the following compound types: RSn(OR')3, RSn(OR')2OR," R2Sn(X)OR', RSnX(OR')2, and RSnX2(OR').
The aim of this compilation has been to provide a comprehensive, non critical source of information concerning organometallic compounds. The scope is limi~ed to the compounds containing at least one carbon-metal bond. The information includes methods of preparation, properties, chemical reactions, and applications. The First Edition comprised the literature from 1937 to 1958. The Second Edition is completely revised and extended through 1964. The literature prior to 1937 was thoroughly covered by E. Krause and A. von Grosse in ''Die Chemie der metall-organischen Verbindungen," Verlag von Gebrueder Borntraeger, Berlin, 1937. Our work consists of three volumes. Volume I contains derivatives of the transition metals of Groups III through VIII of the Periodic Table. Volume II contains derivatives of germanium, tin, and lead. Volume III contains derivatives of arsenic, antimony, and bismuth. The compilation is based on searches through Chemical Abstracts. The collection of references for 1964 was completed before the Subject Indexes to Volumes 60 and 61 of the Abstracts were available; thus some omissions in the coverage of that year are possible. We have attempted to make the .. coverage of the literature complete in order that the compilation may have best ~i1ity to the chemist, chemical engineer, patent attorney, and editor. In the interest of brevity, certain numerical data are omitted, but references to the original literature are given. Yield data are rounded to two significant figures. Wherever possible, tables have been used. The entries in the Bibliography section include references to Chemical Abstracts.
This Specialist Periodical Report aims to reflect the growing interest in the potential of organometallic chemistry.
Reflecting the growing volume of published work in this field, researchers will find this book an invaluable source of information on current methods and applications.
