Examines the use of transition metal complexes as reagents for the synthesis of complex organic molecules. Presented here are total syntheses whose efficiency depends upon the unique reactivity patterns of organometallic complexes. For each total synthesis, the biological activity of the molecule is presented, followed by discussion of the principles of the organometallic processes involved.
