Metal organic compounds also known as an organometallic compound. A compound formed by the combination of alkyl (including methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl etc.) and aromatic (phenyl etc.) alkyl radical with metal atoms. A general term for the direct combination of carbon and metal atoms. It can form stable metal organic compounds with lithium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, zinc, cadmium, mercury, beryllium, aluminum, tin, lead and other metals, is a kind of compound containing at least one M-C bond.
Metal organic compounds have many kinds and are widely used. Can be used in organic synthesis and prepare of polymer compounds. It is a catalyst for polymerization and synthesis of polymer compounds. Metal organic compounds can also be used in complexation reaction, chemical simulation biological nitrogen fixation and hydroformylation, and can also be used in optoelectronic and magnetic functional materials.
