Under the above title I described, more than three years ago, some preliminary experiments which proved the existence of certain organic compounds highly analogous to cacodyl, and, like that body, consisting of a metal, or in some cases phosphorus, associated with the groups C2 H3, C4 H5, C6 H7, &c., and possessing, in most instances, highly remarkable powers of combination. I fixed the composition and studied some of the reactions of two of these bodies, to which the names Zincmethyl (C2 H3 Zn…

The direct reaction, where it can be made to work in high yield should be the more economical of the two but the direct reaction is limited, in industrial practice, to the silicon industry and perhaps to the organotin industry.
The Solid-State Structures of Dimethylzinc and Diethylzinc
High vapor pressures have led to extensive uses in metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) for the preparation of wide band gap II–VI semiconducting films and as p-dopant precursors for III–V semiconductors, which have numerous electronic and photonic applications.
The Synthesis of Halogenated Radiopharmaceuticals Using Organomercurials
Organomercury chemistry began in 1852 with the synthesis of dimethylmercury by Frankland1. Since that time thousands of organomercurials have been described. One of the most attractive aspects of
Transmetalation: a fundamental organometallic reaction critical to synthesis and catalysis
A number of critical reactions form the foundation of organometallic chemistry. One such fundamental reaction of organometallic chemistry is transmetalation, a general term that in its modern meaning
Organotin compounds in foods.
Abstract: This chapter discusses the sources and distribution of organotin compounds (OTCs) in the environment. Due to the intensive use of OTCs as stabilizers for polyvinyl chloride (PVC), as

Mendeleev’s proposal of the periodic table was the final step in what happened to be a long series of attempts by leading chemists of the day to devise a “modern” system for the chemical elements and
