Forging a new association; main group elements and organicchemistry
Covering the essentials of all main group elements in organicchemistry, along with the synthesis and reactions of their organiccompounds in just one volume, Organo Main Group Chemistry breaksimportant new ground. While main group chemistry has traditionallybeen classified as part of inorganic chemistry, this bookestablishes the organic chemistry of main group elements for thefirst time.
The organic compounds of elements in the second period of theperiodic table, which are centered around carbon, are the majorcomponents of animals and plants, while those in the third periodand below also play key roles worthy of discussion when studyingmain group element chemistry.
The major chapters describe synthesis and reactivity of organiccompounds in the third period and below and are arranged accordingto the order of the periodic table. Starting with the role oflithium and magnesium cations, the chapters reach fluorine andiodine compounds. The first two chapters summarize the unique andcommon characteristics of main group elements in relation tocarbon. The latter chapters deal with modern topics that addressthe unique characteristics of organo main group compounds.
Suitable for professional researchers, chemistry professors, andadvanced students, Organo Main Group Chemistry presents a novel newapproach to the way we view both main groups and organic chemistryitself.
