Abstract

An update on the organometallic chemistry of lead since 1995 is presented. In particular the exciting chemistry associated with the synthesis, structure and reactivity plumbylenes, diplumbynes and related species are presented. In addition an extensive section on organolead transition metal complexes of is presented, an area not previously covered.

Keywords:

  • plumbylenes;
  • diplumbenes;
  • diplumbyne;
  • plumbocene;
  • transition metal lead complexes
