About this book

This is a textbook for advanced undergraduate inorganic chemistry courses, covering elementary inorganic reaction chemistry through to more advanced inorganic theories and topics. The approach integrates bioinorganic, environmental, geological and medicinal material into each chapter, and there is a refreshing empirical approach to problems in which the text emphasizes observations before moving onto theoretical models. There are worked examples and solutions in each chapter combined with chapter-ending study objectives, 40-70 exercises per chapter and experiments for discovery-based learning.


Inorganic ions and simple molecules in chemistry and in our environment: periodic trends in fundamental properties of atoms and simple ions; monoatomic ions and their acid-based reactivity; polyatomic ions and thier acid based properties; ionic solids and precipitation reactions of hydrated ions; trends in coordination equilibria; principles of oxidation-reduction reactivity; thermochemical analyses of reactivity trends; introduction to transition metal complexes. Inorganic substances and materials - theory and applications: symmetry; molecular orbital theory; transition-metal organometallic compounds and catalysis; the elements of their physical properties; oxides of the elements; the halides, nitrades, and sulfides of the elements; inorganic reaction mechanisms; advanced topics - excited electronic states, photochemistry, and activated molecules.
