"s-Block Organometallic Synthesis : Inorganic Perspectives"
Dr Charles O’Hara
Senior Lecturer in Inorganic Chemistry
Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry

Conference soutenue par la SCF, Section Lorraine.
(contact P. Gros :

By combining an alkali metal organometallic compound with a magnesium one (to give an alkali metal magnesiate), a special chemistry which often cannot be replicated by either metal on their own can be performed. Specifically, this talk will focus on the reaction of alkali metal magnesiate compounds with a wide selection of arene molecules, paying particular attention to the structural chemistry and the ultimate synthetic utilisation of the reactions. Also reactions of magnesiates with conformationally-locked ketones will be described.
