Metal is directly linked to alkyl groups in Organo-metallic compounds. Examples:Methyl Lithium,CH3 Li and Tetra ethyl lead,Pb(C2H5)4.

Organo-metallic compound ; a metal combined with an organic radical, particularly when the metal is linked directly to a carbon atom.

Organometallic compounds are distinguished by the prefix "organo-" e.g. organopalladium compounds. Examples of such organometallic compounds include all Gilman reagents, which contain lithium and copper. Tetracarbonyl nickel, and ferrocene are examples of organometallic compounds containing transition metals. Other examples include organomagnesium compounds like iodo(methyl)magnesium MeMgI, diethylmagnesium (Et2Mg), and all Grignard reagents; organolithium compounds such as n-butyllithium (n-BuLi), organozinc compounds such as diethylzinc (Et2Zn) and chloro(ethoxycarbonylmethyl)zinc (ClZnCH2C(=O)OEt); and organocopper compounds such as lithium dimethylcuprate (Li+[CuMe2]).

Organo-metallic compounds are normally named as substituted metals, e.g. alkyl metal or alkyl metal halide

Organometallic compound, The periodic table of the elements, showing the group numbers and the s, p, d, [Credit: Encyclopdia Britannica, Inc.] any member of a class of substances containing at least one metal-to-carbon bond in which the carbon is part of an organic group. Organometallic compounds constitute a very large group of substances that have played a major role in the development of the science of chemistry. They are used to a large extent as catalysts (substances that increase the rate of reactions without themselves being consumed) and as intermediates in the laboratory and in industry. The class includes such compounds as ferrocene, a remarkably stable compound in which an iron atom is sandwiched between two hydrocarbon rings.
