Application to Organometallic Compounds

  • R. H. Herber


Mössbauer spectroscopy, used in conjunction with the other spectroscopic methods which are normally employed in structure elucidation, such as infrared, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and x-ray diffraction techniques, provides a powerful tool for the study of organometallic compounds incorporating the nuclides which are suitable for such studies. Fortunately, the two elements which are most readily accessible for Mössbauer work by chemists—iron and tin—have a very extensive and varied organometallic chemistry and are representative in many ways of transition metals and nontransition metals, respectively. In the present chapter, some of the broad outlines of Mössbauer studies on organometallic compounds of iron and tin will be summarized, and some examples from the recent literature will be reviewed. However, this discussion is intended to be neither encyclopedic nor exhaustive, and the interested reader is referred to some of the reviews on this topic which have appeared in the literature [1,2].
