Every member of a class of substances that includes at least one metal-to-carbon bond in which the carbon is part of an organic group. Organometallic compounds comprise a very broad community of substances which have played a major role in the history of the chemistry research. They are commonly used as catalysts (substances which increase the rate of reactions without being consumed by themselves) and as intermediates in the laboratory and in industry. The class includes compounds such as ferrocene, a surprisingly stable compound which sandwiches an iron atom between two rings of hydrocarbons.
