MORRISVILLE, PA – Gelest Inc. has announced a new 348-page reference manual, titled Metal-Organics for Materials, Polymers & Synthesis, that showcases the company’s greatly expanded range of metal-organic compounds for materials, polymers and synthesis. One hundred new compounds have been added, including metal alkoxides, diketonates and monomers. The materials are available as 100-percent active or solvent dilutions for use in catalysis, sol-gel and cross-linking reactions.

The new reference manual provides exhaustive research on catalysis, organic synthesis, surface modification, metallization, conductive coatings, polymer synthesis and self-assembled monolayers. It also includes technical data for Gelest’s more than 1,000 metal-organic compounds, accompanied by additional reference materials to facilitate the availability of information for use in the development of new applications.

In addition, three new technical papers are incorporated to complement the library of 14 technical papers already included in the reference manual. The three new technical paper topics include “Stable Multiple Bond Germanium Species,” “Industrial Applications of Organotin Chemistry” and “Boiling Point – Pressure Nomograph.”
