(b) The organometallic compounds having sigma bond between carbon and metal are sigma bonded organometallic. An example of a sigma bonded organometallic compound is Grignard's reagent

                             R-Mg-Xσ-bond

Whereas, ruthenocene, ferrocene and cobaltocene are not sigma bonded organometallic compound.
