About this book

Explains the basics of inorganic chemistry with a primary emphasis on facts; then uses the studenta s growing factual knowledge as a foundation for discussing the important principles of periodicity in structure, bonding and reactivity. New to this updated edition: improved treatment of atomic orbitals and properties such as electronegativity, novel approaches to the depiction of ionic structures, nomenclature for transition metal compounds, quantitative approaches to acid--base chemistry, Wadea s rules for boranes and carboranes, the chemistry of major new classes of substances including fullerenes and silenes plus a chapter on the inorganic solid state.


PART 1: FIRST PRINCIPLES: Some Preliminaries; The Electronic Structure of Atoms; Structure and Bonding in Molecules; Ionic Solids; PART 2: THE MAIN GROUP ELEMENTS: Hydrogen; The Group IA(1) Elements: The Group IIA(2) Elements; The Group IIIB(13) Elements; The Group IVB(14) Elements; The Group VB(15) Elements; The Group VIB(16) Elements: 7; The Halogens: The Noble Gases; PART 3: TRANSITION ELEMENTS; PART 4: SOME SPECIAL TOPICS: Metal Carbonyls and Other Transition Metal Complexes with (-Acid) Ligands; Organometallic Compounds; Stoichiometric and Catalytic Reactions of Organometallic Compounds; Bioinorganic Chemistry.
