Metal-organic compounds (jargon: metalorganics, metallo-organics) are a class of chemical compounds that contain metals and organic ligands, which confer solubility in organic solvents or volatility. Compounds with these properties find applications in materials science for metal organic vapor deposition (MOCVD) or sol-gel processing. Precise definitions may vary, however the term may describe:
- Organometallic compounds
- Metal coordination complexes of organic ligands, e.g., metal acetylacetonates, alkoxides.
