The original German version of this book is already a classic, and this comprehensive up–to–date English edition is THE organometallic textbook for all graduate students and lecturers of inorganic, organic, bioinorganic, coordination, and organometallic chemistry. This completely revised book has been expanded and updated to incorporate important developments in the field since the previous editions: the chapter on organometallic catalysis in synthesis and production appears for the first time in this form, bioorganometallic chemistry has considerably strengthened and a new section on the organometallic chemistry of the lanthanoids and actinoids has been added.

From the reviews of the first English editions:

"The selection of material and the order of its presentation is first class ... Students and their instructors will find this book extraordinarily easy to use and extraordinarily useful."

Chemistry in Britain

"... the textbook of choice for graduate or senior–level courses that place an equal emphasis on main group element and transition metal organometallic chemistry. ... this book can be unequivocally recommended to any teacher or student of organometallic chemistry."

Angewandte Chemie International Edition

"The breadth and depth of coverage are outstanding, and the excitement of synthetic organometallic chemistry comes across very strongly."

"The wealth of information contained herein makes it an excellent reference work. (...) We have in ′Organometallics′ a cemprehensive and reasonably–priced book that illustrates the synthesis and properties of an enormous range of organyls and complex compounds, and it is highly recommended for advanced students for whom these areas hold a significant attraction."


"Organized by introduction, maingroup and transition–metal organometallic compunds in 18 chapters, Organometallics offers a well–designed and proven textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and for professionals."
