Abstract : The conference encompassed 26 invited talks and 37 poster session presentation. Three papers concerned electron transfer of the Group I elements. Both anions and cations may be solvolyzed. The affinity for oxygen by certain transition metals (Zr,Mo) is an important driving force in organic rearrangement reactions. Breaking into a C-H bond still represents a formidable task, but it can be achieved with certain Ir complexes. The organometallic chemistry of La and of the actinides represents relatively unexplored territory. Organometallics are important in a number of commercial processes, e.g., fatty olefins, hexamethylene diamine. Synthesis of glycol from syn gas is promising, and C02 may subsititute for C0 as a building block. Clusters may range from bare metals, through di and trimers to multiply-bonded species. Tin, in both plus 2 and plus 4 valencies, has a very extensive organometallic chemistry. (Author)
