About this book

The book prepares students of science or engineering for entry into the multi-billion-dollar inorganic chemical and related industries, and for rational approaches to environmental problems such as pollution abatement, corrosion control, and water treatment. A much expanded and updated revision of the 1990 text, Applied Inorganic Chemistry.

The standard of writing and production is excellent. The principles are clearly explained and are illustrated by interesting examples. Consequently, the book makes agreeably easy reading and invites browsing....this book can provide the newcomer to inorganic chemistry with a good first insight into a variety of interesting topics,... --Steffen Hasenzahl
