A review on organometallic compds., which are defined as those which have a carbon to metal single sigma bond polarized Ms+ - Cs-. It discusses biomethylation (the process whereby living organisms produce a direct linkage of a Me group to a metal or metalloid, thus forming metal-carbon bonds) of several metals, such as arsenic, antimony, and mercury.
