Landmarks in Organo-Transition Metal Chemistry: A Personal by Helmut Werner

By Helmut Werner

Since the invention of ferrocene and the sandwich-type complexes, the advance of organometallic chemistry took its direction like an avalanche and have become one of many clinical luck tales of the second one half the 20 th century. in response to this improvement, the normal barriers among inorganic and natural chemistry steadily disappeared and a rebirth of the these days hugely very important box of homogeneous catalysis happened. it's reasonable to assert that although the main discovery, which sparked all of it off, used to be made greater than 50 years in the past, organometallic chemistry continues to be a tender and full of life discipline.
