Organometallic compounds are characterized by at least one bond between a carbon atom of an organic compound and a metal atom. Gilman reagents, ferrocene, diethylmagnesium, Grignard reagents, organolithium compounds, organozinc compounds, and organocopper compounds are some examples of organometallics. These compounds are a diverse and versatile family of molecules which have a wide range of potential applications in many domains of life. Organometallic chemistry has produced many Nobel laureates. As the character of metal-carbon bonds lie in between ionic and covalent, organometallics are both relatively stable in solutions and relatively ionic to undergo reactions, which make them very important in industry.
