The authors (professors of chemistry at the U. of Tsukuba, Japan) describe recent advances in synthesizing isolable low-coordinate derivatives of heavy group 14 elements, focusing on the most important and most recent advances that are crucial for a general understanding of the peculiar structural bonding and chemical properties of the low-coordinate 14 organometallics. It consists of six chapters covering heavy analogs of: carbenium, free radicals, carboanions, carbenes, unsaturated hydrocarbons, and aromatic compounds. Each chapter includes a review of general synthetic approaches, discussion of particular structural features and synthetic applications, and description of recent advances in the field of stable derivatives.
