Organometallic chemistry. Past, present, and future*

Akio Yamamoto

Advanced Research Institute for Science and Engineering, Waseda University, Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan

Abstract: Development of organometallic chemistry in the past half century is reviewed from the author's personal viewpoint with focus on the establishment of fundamental concepts relevant to catalysis. Further development in the coming century is expected in view of the diversity of transition-metal complexes and their unique properties.

* Lecture presented at the XIXth International Conference on Organometallic Chemistry (XIX ICOMC) , Shanghai, China, 23-28 July 2000. Other presentations are published in this issue, pp. 205-376.
