Chapter 11 2 Organometallic Compounds Most metals are less electronegative than carbon In general a carbon bonded to a metal is nucleophilic and carbanion-like (C ) Four major classes of organometallic compounds are: Organolithium compounds Grignard reagents Cuprates Organopalladium compounds

Chapter 11 4 Although the carbon–metal bonds are not completely ionic, organolithium compounds and Grignard reagents react as if the carbon portion were a carbanion Consider the reaction of a Grignard reagent with an ethylene oxide Ethylene oxide is a good way to extend a carbon chain by two carbons via use of halide to make organometallic cpd with negative charge on C
