This completely revised and updated second edition ofOrganometallic Compounds in the Environment treats environmental organometallic chemistry as an integrated and coherent subject area in its own right, bringing together contributions from leading scientists throughout the world.

The Introduction summarizes and explores those properties of organometallic compounds that are relevant to their behaviour and impact in the natural environment. Subsequent chapters cover those elements whose organometallic derivatives are especially important in the environmental context. The natural formation of organometallics from inorganic precursors under environmental conditions is also treated in detail. An important underlying theme running through the work is the biological properties and toxicities of the organometallic species present in the environment. In general a full speciation approach is taken, where the full molecular identities of the compounds concerned are considered.

Research workers in the fields of organometallic compounds and their environmental impact, as well as those interested in organometallic and environmental chemistry generally, will welcome this new edition. It will also be invaluable as a source book to lecturers teaching courses at undergraduate or graduate level in applied, analytical, industrial, organometallic or environmental chemistry, or in environmental science in general.
