About this title


A comprehensive, up-to-date reference to synthetic applications oforganosilicon chemistry Organic, organometallic, and polymerchemistry as well as materials science all utilize silicon invarious forms, yet there is little cross-fertilization of ideas andapplications among the disciplines. This book presents amuch-needed overview of silicon chemistry, allowing fundamental andapplied scientists to take full advantage of progress made withinand outside their primary fields of expertise. With an emphasis onthe preparation and reactivity of silicon compounds in organic,organometallic, and polymer chemistry, the author examines a broadrange of useful topics-from mechanisms to syntheses of andsyntheses using different organofunctional silanes. Numerousschemes as well as up-to-date examples from academia and industrywill help readers to solve current synthetic problems and exploreideas for future research. Clear, concise coverage includes:
* The mechanistic basis for the development of new silicon-basedreactions
* Formation and cleavage of silane reagents and functionalsiliconheteroatom compounds
* Silicones, silica, polysilanes, and other silicon-containingpolymers
* Properties of molecules containing silicon, includingbioactivity
* Methods for the preparation of Si-C compounds
* Silicon in organic synthesis
* An extensive functional group index for easy access to functionalgroup transformations

It is almost exactly 40 years since the appearance of my book, entitled Organosilicon Compounds, which presented the essentials of virtually all the organosilicon chemistry known at that time. The huge growth in the subject in subsequent years has brought forth many excellent eviews and multiauthor compilations. However, these have inevitably concentrated largely on specific aspects of the field or the most prominent advances of the time. It has long been apparent that a coherent up-to-date general account was badly needed, preferably written by a single author. I had hoped over the years that one of my own former students might write it, but they, and others to whom I suggested the task, found it too daunting. I am delighted that the person who has been prepared to take on the great challenge is the son of my old friend Adrian Brook, who himself has made such important contributions to organosilicon chemistry.

The book presents a massive amount of information very clearly and concisely, but it could not be comprehensive without taking up several volumes of the present size and many more years of work. By his wise selection and careful organization of material, Michael Brook has managed to produce a volume that will serve very well for many years both as an introduction for chemists coming new to the field and as a reference work for practitioners. The areas of greatest development in organonsilicon chemistry in the last 30 years or so have been in the detection and isolation of novel types of fundamental organosilicon species and the utilization of organosilicon chemistry in organic syntheses. The author has largely focused on these areas and has done so primarily from the viewpoint of the synthetic chemist. He has also provided a valuable outline of aspects of the commercially important field of silicon-containing polymers. The restrictions on coverage still allow for presentatio! n of a strikingly wide range of chemistry, the author's mastery of which is very impressive indeed.

This work is of very high quality, and the author is to be congratulated. Those working with or planning to undertake research on organosilanes or contemplating using oganosilicon chemistry in organic synthesis will need to have this book available, preferably on their own shelves, and I commend it with confidence and much enthusiasm.
