It takes only seconds for the chemical buffers in the blood to make adjustments to pH. The respiratory tract can adjust the blood pH upward in minutes by exhaling CO2 from the body. How Scared Should We Be?
Organometallic Compounds Photo by: Ivan Proskuryakov Organometallic compounds have at least one carbon to metal bond, according to most definitions.
Compounds containing metal to hydrogen bonds as well as some compounds containing nonmetallic metalloid elements bonded to carbon are sometimes included in this class of compounds.
Some common properties of organometallic compounds are relatively low melting points, insolubility in water, solubility in ether and related solvents, toxicity, oxidizability, and high reactivity. An example of an organometallic compound of importance years ago is tetraethyllead Et 4 4Pb which is an antiknock agent for gasoline.
It is presently banned from use in the United States. The first metal complex identified as an organometallic compound was a salt, K C 2 H 4 PtCl 3obtained from reaction of ethylene with platinum II chloride by William Zeise in It was not until much later — that the correct structure of Zeise's compound see Figure 1 was reported in connection with the structure of a metallocene compound known as ferrocene see Figure 2.
Anion of Zeise's compound Figure 2. Ferrocene Preparation of ferrocene was reported at about the same time by two research groups, and a sandwich structure was proposed, based on ferrocene's physical properties Kauffman, pp.
The sandwich structure was confirmed by x-ray diffraction studies. Since then, other metallocenes composed of other metals and other carbon ring molecules, such as dibenzenechromium see Figure 3 and uranocene see Figure 4have been prepared.
Possibly the first scientist to synthesize an organometallic compound was Edward Frankland, who prepared diethylzinc by reaction of ethyl iodide with zinc metal in Thayer b, pp.
This rule assumes that the metal atom accepts from its ligands the number of electrons needed in order for it to attain the electronic configuration of the next noble gas. It assumes that the valence shells of the metal atom will contain 18 electrons.
Thus, the sum of the number of d electrons plus the number of electrons supplied by the ligands will be There are exceptions to this rule, however. Dibenzenechromium Possibly the earliest biomedical application of an organometallic compound was the discovery, by Paul Ehrlich, of the organoarsenical Salvarsan, the first antisyphilitic agent.
Salvarsan and other organoarsenicals are sometimes listed as organometallics even though arsenic is not a true metal. Vitamin B 12 is an organocobalt complex essential to the diet of human beings. Absence of or deficiency of B 12 in the diet or a body's inability to absorb it is the cause of pernicious anemia.
Use as Reagents or Catalysts Organometallic compounds are very useful as catalysts or reagents in the synthesis of organic compounds, such as pharmaceutical products.
One of the major advantages of organometallic compounds, as compared with organic or inorganic compounds, is their high reactivity.
Reactions that cannot be carried out with the usual types of organic reagents can sometimes be easily carried out using one of a wide variety of available organometallics.
A second advantage is the high reaction selectivity that is often achieved via the use of organometallic catalysts.
For example, ordinary free-radical polymerization of ethylene yields a waxy low-density polyethylene, but use of a special organometallic catalyst produces a more ordered linear polyethylene with a higher density, a higher melting pointand a greater strength.Discuss the common side effects of available PTCL treatment options and strategies to manage these side effects; Faculty Michelle Fanale, MD Associate Professor Department of Lymphoma/Myeloma Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Seattle, WA.
