Transition Metal-Promoted Reactions of Main Group Species and Main Group-Promoted Reactions of Transition Metal Species

  • Russell N. Grimes
Part of the Modern Inorganic Chemistry book series (MICE)

Abstract

Given the wide application of transition metal reagents to organic chemistry, it is not surprising to find a broad range of main group element reactions which are mediated by transition metals. It is often useful to compare and contrast such processes with transition metal-hydrocarbon interactions, but there are important differences and the analogy must not be carried too far. Indeed, on surveying the range of known metal-facilitated transformations of main-group species, it is apparent that many such reactions are in fact mechanistically distinct from organometallic processes (and from each other) and frequently generate structurally dissimilar products. Not surprisingly, main group-transition metal interactions tend to be characterized by special features endemic to the specific element or compound type, defying broad generalizations.
