This is a conventional book in the best sense. With that in mind, it is appropriate and very welcome that several chapters have been thoroughly scrutinized by renowned colleagues, resulting in a book that is virtually free of errors. Journal Angewandte Chemie International Edition — Wiley Published: Jan 19, 2004. The tri- and dihalides form adducts with good Lewis bases such as. The book ends with chapters on the importance of organotin compounds in organic synthesis, for example in the Stille coupling reaction, and finally a short overview on the technological applications of organotin compounds and on environmental issues.
Numerous examples of hypervalency are provided by the organotin oxides and associated carboxylates and related pseudohalide derivatives. Thoonen; Berth-Jan Deelman; Gerard van Koten 2004. Without hesitation, this monograph, like its predecessor, can be recommended to every organic or organometallic chemist engaged in synthetic work. The book impressively reflects the importance that organotin compounds have achieved in organic synthesis. This monograph gives an impressive overview, which concentrates mainly on the preparative aspects of organotin chemistry. In contrast to the triorganotin compounds, monoorgano, diorgano- and tetraorganotin compounds are far less dangerous.
At long last: The second, completely revised edition of this comprehensive standard reference. Organotin compounds are also used extensively in e. Yet, only two years ago, two volumes covering 1800 pages on The Chemistry of Organic Germanium, Tin, and Lead Compounds were added to the Wiley series The Chemistry of Functional Groups. In this capacity, they suppress degradation by removing allylic chloride groups and by absorbing hydrogen chloride. Triphenyltin derivativess are used as active components of antifungal paints and agricultural fungicides. Concerns over toxicity of these compounds some reports describe biological effects to marine life at a concentration of 1 per liter led to a worldwide ban by the.
Organotin chemistry is part of the wider field of. Metal ions in life sciences. Organotin complexes have been studied in anticancer therapy. Organotin Carboxylates and Other Oxyesters. Such cations are analogous to. Emeritus Professor Summary Alwyn Davies joined the staff in 1953 and has been successively Lecturer, Reader, Professor and Acting Head of Department.
Academic Press: New York, 1981. Bromides, iodides, and fluorides are also known but less important. Against this background, one must ask whether the publication of a new edition of Organotin Chemistry is justified. The monograph begins by discussing physical data and methods, followed by an additional chapter discussing the influence of the stannyl substituent in organic synthesis. One must also mention the well-structured tables and the abundance of clear formula schemes. He covers all aspects in detail, such as its synthesis, characterization, structures and applications, while also devoting space to such hot topics as environmental issues.
The Stannyl Group as a Substituent. Furthermore, tri- n-alkyltins are and therefore cannot be used in agriculture. Classic is the reaction of a with tin halides for example. Organotin compounds are those with tin linked to hydrocarbons. He has held visiting professorships at Indiana, Bordeaux, Freiburg, Deakin, and the Australian National University, and at the National Research Council Ottawa.
Compounds with the empirical formula SnR 2 are somewhat fragile and exist as rings or polymers when R is not bulky. These hypercoordinated compounds usually have substituents. The Sn-Sn distance is 3. Which enable the reader to quickly grasp the essence of each chapter. One must also mention the well-structured tables and the abundance of clear formula schemes.
The text manages to reach a good interdisciplinary balance of material, making it of interest to both inorganic specialists wanting to broaden their understanding of organic synthesis and organic specialists interested in a more detailed understanding of structural aspects of organotin compounds that they are likely to encounter. Organotin compounds or stannanes are based on with substituents. The book impressively reflects the importance that organotin compounds have achieved in organic synthesis. Davies has updated the contents of his book to reflect the current state of research into organotin chemistry. Furthermore, the author has used this opportunity to undertake a thorough revision. Monomeric compounds with the formula SnR 2, analogues of are also known in a few cases.
