Summary and Info
E.O. Fischer received the Nobel prize in 1973 for the investigations of complexes with a formal metal atom-carbon double bond. Among these, the Iron-Carbene species is readily available and has proved to be a versatile reagent in organic syntheses. It is rather simple to tune the electronicproperties of this Fischer Carbene and to control reactivity and stereospecificity of the reagent in, e.g., cyclopropanation reactions. This first volume of the "Scripts in Inorganic and Organome- tallic Chemistry" addresses graduate students in the fields ofcoordination compounds and organic synthesis. It covers the chemistry and structural aspects of iron-carbon com- pounds with a iron-carbon double bond. The first part deals with the carbene moiety, the second with vinylidene ligands.
