In recent years, the organometallic and coordination chemistry of the alkali and alkaline earth metals has experienced tremendous progress to tackle the needs of today’s society. Enhanced ecological awareness and global availability favor research on the chemistry of the essential s-block metals. Nowadays, the s-block metals are conquering new chemical fields based on sophisticated theoretical and preparative achievements. Recent investigations show a huge impact of the s-block elements on stoichiometric and catalytic processes. View Full-Text
