Organometallic Chemistry of Five-Membered Heterocycles is a comprehensive source of information on the synthesis, coordination modes and reactivity of coordinated five-membered monoheterocycles and the organometallic complexes of their numerous derivatives, including chelating ligands, oligomers and macrocycles. Applications in modern materials chemistry are examined, including optical materials, catalysts, fuels, and more. An ideal reference for researchers working in organometallic, heterocyclic, materials chemistry, organic chemistry and catalysis, readers will find this book a comprehensive overview on the modern synthetic methods, possible coordination situations, trends in reactivity of the coordinated heteroaromatic ligands, and methods for construction of modern materials.
- Includes synthesis, structural features and coordination modes of five-membered heterocycles
- Features a comparative analysis of reactivity of uncoordinated and coordinated ligands
- Offers coverage of derivatives of fundamental ligands and examines trends in materials applications
Alexander P. Sadimenko was born at Rostov-o-Don in 1951. He studied at Rostov State University where he obtained his M.Sc. in 1973 and Ph.D. in 1976 under the guidance of Professor O. A. Osipov. During 1976-1987 he worked as lecturer, senior lecturer, and associate professor at Rostov State University, 1987-1991 as associate professor at Addis Ababa University, 1991-1994 as associate professor and professor at National University of Lesotho, and 1994 until the present as professor, Head of the Department, and head of Directorate of Physical and Earth Sciences at the University of Fort Hare. His specific interests include all aspects of organometallic chemistry of the heteroaromatic ligands, particularlly, materials chemistry aspects.
