This volume surveys major advances in the area of organometallic chemistry - the synthesis of stable, multiply bonded compounds of main group metals and metalloids. Notable advances occurred in this field in 1981, when the synthesis of stable compounds containing Si=C, Si=Si, and P-P multiple bonds were announced. Until these discoveries, organometallic chemistry had been limited by the double-bond rule, which asserted that elements outside the first row of the periodic table would not form stable multiple bonds. During the intervening 14 years, many other stable multiply bonded compounds have been discovered, and the field of organometallic chemistry has expanded as a result. This volume surveys the current knowledge of many of these compounds and should be of use to researchers and students in the field.
