An Introduction to Organometallic Chemistry

This booklet provides an built-in view of the organometallic chemistry of transition and non-transition components. Early chapters take care of the elemental ideas, education and constitution of organometallic compounds. next chapters talk about the reactivity of those compounds and the purposes of organometallic compounds as stoichiometric reagents and catalysts.

The interfaces among the consortium, member organizations and research teams have been structured to address these issues. ’’ The creation of formal IP with its protections enables them to go to market with their discovery or product, and is thus highly valued as a key resource. Competitive advantage for most biotechnology firms and research organizations is fostered by knowledge-related competencies; that is, developing ideas that can attract IP protection along with strategic cooperation with partners who can commercialize the IP (Gans & Stern, 2003).

How Collaboration Emerged and Evolved As noted above, the Australian biotechnology sector has been characterized by the turbulence also encountered by biotechnology fields in other countries. However, the Australian context presents additional problems, such as the ‘‘tyranny of distance,’’ a more dispersed base of public institutions and limited industrial avenues to bring ideas to market (Wills, 1998). Scientists and administrators interviewed recognized that the Australian industry could only stay at the forefront if it positioned itself at the cutting edge of knowledge production and technology development.

Interviewees said that public research in the past had been directed by sole researchers and appeared to be uncoordinated. However, medical and social problems required some ‘‘direction’’ to balance scientific output with the public good. Similarly, it became widely recognized in the past decade that a more directive approach was required to take advantage of the wide range of expertise in the biosciences in Australia. Interviewees’ widely held belief was that Australia performs excellent research in the biotechnology sector.
