Textbook on inorganic chemistry, intended for first and second year students. Aiming to provide the essential elements, it is divided into six sections covering theoretical concepts and hydrogen, the s-block, p-block, d-block, f-block and other topics.
The main aim of this book is to provide a textbook of inorganic chemistry covering the essential elements. It sets a framework into which the reader should be able to fit factual knowledge and extrapolate from this to predict unknown facts and is mainly intended for first or second degree chemistry students. The structure of the book is based on descriptive chemistry combined with some of the reasons why. It is divided into six sections on theoretical concepts and hydrogen, the s-block, the p-block, the d-block, the f-block and other topics. At the end of most chapters is a section on further reading and there are references to other work. An ELBS/LPBB edition is available
