This textbook provides essential information for students of inorganic chemistry or for chemists pursuing self-study. The presentation of topics is made with an effort to be clear and concise so that the book is portable and user friendly. Inorganic Chemistry 2E is divided into five major themes (structure, condensed phases, solution chemistry, main group and coordination compounds) with several chapters in each. There is a logical progression from atomic structure to molecular structure to properties of substances based on molecular structures, to behavior of solids, etc. The author emphasizes fundamental principles-including molecular structure, acid-base chemistry, coordination chemistry, ligand field theory, and solid state chemistry -and presents topics in a clear, concise manner. There is a reinforcement of basic principles throughout the book. For example, the hard-soft interaction principle is used to explain hydrogen bond strengths, strengths of acids and bases, stability of coordination compounds, etc. The book contains a balance of topics in theoretical and descriptive chemistry. New to this Edition: New and improved illustrations including symmetry and 3D molecular orbital representations Expanded coverage of spectroscopy, instrumental techniques, organometallic and bio-inorganic chemistry More in-text worked-out examples to encourage active learning and to prepare students for their exams • Concise coverage maximizes student understanding and minimizes the inclusion of details students are unlikely to use. • Discussion of elements begins with survey chapters focused on the main groups, while later chapters cover the elements in greater detail. • Each chapter opens with narrative introductions and includes figures, tables, and end-of-chapter problem sets.

This book addresses the question, What is inorganic chemistry good for? rather than the more traditional question, How can we develop a theoretical basis for inorganic chemistry from sophisticated theories of bonding? 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 (University of Calgary Press), Inorganic Chemistry covers topics including atmospheric pollution and its abatement, water conditioning, fertilizers, cement chemistry, extractive metallurgy, metallic corrosion, catalysts, fuel cells and advanced batter technology, pulp and paper production, explosives, supercritical fluids, sol-gel science, materials for electronics, and superconductors. Though the book waswritten as a textbook for undergraduates with a background of freshman chemistry, it will also be a valuable sourcebook for practicing chemists, engineers, environmental scientists, geologists, and educators. Key Features * Presents the principles of inorganic chemistry in terms of its relevance to the real world of industry and environmental protection * Serves as a concise reference for practicing scientists, engineers, and educators * Emphasizes industrially relevant energetics and kinetics rather than bonding theories * Features extensive cross-referencing for easy location of supporting material

Inorganic Chemistry "Catherine E. Housecroft and Alan G. Sharpe" This book has established itself as a leading textbook in the subject by offering a fresh and exciting approach to the teaching of modern inorganic chemistry. It gives a clear introduction to key principles with strong coverage of descriptive chemistry of the elements. Special selected topics chapters are included, covering inorganic kinetics and mechanism, catalysis, solid state chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry. A new full-colour text design and three-dimensional illustrations bring inorganic chemistry to life. Topic boxes have been used extensively throughout the book to relate the chemistry described in the text to everyday life, the chemical industry, environmental issues and legislation, and natural resources. Teaching aids throughout the text have been carefully designed to help students learn effectively. The many worked examples take students through each calculation or exercise step by step, and are followed by related self-study exercises tackling similar problems with answers to help develop their confidence. In addition, end-of-chapter problems reinforce learning and develop subject knowledge and skills. Definitions boxes and end-of-chapter checklists provide excellent revision aids, while further reading suggestions, from topical articles to recent literature papers, will encourage students to explore topics in more depth. New to this edition Many more self-study exercises have been introduced throughout the book with the aim of making stronger connections between descriptive chemistry and underlying principles. Additional 'overview problems' have been addedto the end-of-chapter problem sets. The descriptive chemistry has been updated, with many new results from the literature being included. Chapter 4 Bonding in polyatomic molecules, has been rewritten with greater emphasis on the use of group theory for the derivation of ligand group orbitals and orbital symmetry labels. There is more coverage of supercritical fluids and 'green' chemistry. The new full-colour text design enhances the presentation of the many molecular structures and 3-D images.

This is one of the few books available that uses unifying theoretical concepts to present inorganic chemistry at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels--most texts are organized around the periodic table, while this one is structured after bonding models, structure types, and reaction patterns. But the real strength of Porterfield's Second Edition is its clear presentation of ample background description, especially in recent areas of development such as cluster molecules, industrial catalysis, and bio-inorganic chemistry. This information will enable students to understand most current journals, empowering them to stay abreast of the latest advances in the field. Specific improvements of the Second Edition include new chapters on materials-science applications and bioinorganic chemistry, an extended discussion of transition-metal applications (including cuprate superconductors), and extended Tanabe-Sugano diagrams. Extended treatment of inorganic materials science--ceramics, refractories, magnetic materials, superconductors--in the context of solid-state chemistry Extended coverage of biological systems and their chemical and physiological consequences--02 metabolism, N2 fixation, muscle action, iron storage, cisplatin and nucleic acid structural probes, and photosynthesis Unusual structures and species--silatranes, metallacarboranes, alkalides and electrides, vapor-deposition species, proton and hybrid sponges, massive transition-metal clusters, and agostic ligands Thorough examination of industrial processes using organometallic catalysts and their mechanisms Entropy-driven reactions Complete discussion of inorganic photochemistry
