Aims & Scope

The series Topics in Organometallic Chemistry presents critical overviews of research results in organometallic chemistry. The understanding of organometallic structure, properties and mechanism has rapidly increased in recent years, opening the way for the design of organometallic compounds and reactions tailored to the needs of such diverse areas as medicine, biology, materials and organic synthesis. Thus the scope of coverage includes a broad range of topics of pure and applied organometallic chemistry, where new breakthroughs are being achieved that are of significance to a larger scientific audience.
Where appropriate, theoretical and mechanistic aspects are included in order to help the reader understand the underlying principles involved. When the topic under consideration deals with chemical functionality, for example, cross coupling reactions, the volume should present the various possible metal systems, so that the non-expert reader can make a critical comparison. Topics concerned primarily with structural chemistry or bioinorganic chemistry will, in general, not be treated in Topics in Organometallic Chemistry, but rather in the related Springer series Structure and Bonding and Topics in Biological Inorganic Chemistry, respectively.
The individual volumes of Topics in Organometallic Chemistry are thematic. The goal of each volume is to give the non-specialist reader a comprehensive overview of a topic of broad current interest. Thus each review within the volume critically surveys one aspect of that topic and places it within the context of the volume as a whole. The most significant recent developments should be presented using selected examples to illustrate the principles discussed. A description of the laboratory procedures involved is often useful to the reader. The coverage should not be exhaustive in data, but should rather be conceptual, concentrating on the methodological thinking that will allow the non-specialist reader to understand the information presented. Discussion of possible future research directions in the area is welcome.
Review articles for the individual volumes are invited by the volumes editors.
Readership: research scientists at universities or in industry, graduate students
