Organometallic Chemistry in the interstellar medium

We present in this paper a review of an astrochemistry study concerning interactions between metals and molecules. The possibility of such an organometallic chemistry is based on the metal depletion in the interstellar medium (ISM) and the large abundance expected for polycyclic aromatic molecules (PAHs). Guy Serra was a pioneer of interstellar organometallic chemistry and contributed to promote this theory.
