About the book

Organometallic compounds have at least one carbon to metal bond. This bond can be either a direct carbon to metal bond (sigma bond) or a metal complex bond (pi bond) and provide a source of nucleophilic carbon atoms which can react with electrophilic carbon to form a new carbon-carbon bond. Organometallic compounds have very important roles in chemical reactions due to character of metal – carbon bond in organometallic compounds (it can either behave as ionic and covalent or in-between). Biological systems contain a variety of organometallic compounds such as myoglobin, haemoglobin and chlorophyll. The aim of this book to look at the quantum chemical, spectral properties and the development of organometallic-containing, and more generally, metal-containing anticancer and antimalarial compounds, antibacterial drugs, dye-sensitized solar cells and nanofibers.
