Now in its fourth edition, Housecroft & Sharpe's Inorganic Chemistry is a well-respected and leading international textbook. Inorganic Chemistry is primarily designed to be a student text but is well-received as a reference book for those working in the field of inorganic chemistry. Inorganic Chemistry provides both teachers and students with a clearly written and beautifully-illustrated introduction to core physical-inorganic principles. It introduces the descriptive chemistry of the elements and the role played by inorganic chemistry in our everyday lives. Chapters on catalysis and industrial processes, bioinorganic chemistry, and inorganic materials and nanotechnology include many of the latest advances in these fields. There is a new chapter on experimental techniques, and the large number of worked examples, exercises and end-of-chapter problems illustrate a broad range of their applications in inorganic chemistry. The striking full-colour design includes a wealth of three-dimensional molecular and protein structures and photographs, enticing students to delve into the world of inorganic chemistry. Throughout its four editions, Inorganic Chemistry has successfully given both teachers and students the tools with which to approach the subject confidently and with enjoyment. Environmental issues linked to inorganic chemistry, topics relating inorganic chemistry to biology and medicine, and the applications of inorganic chemicals in the laboratory, industry and daily life form the basis of a wide range of topic boxes in the book, helping students to appreciate the importance and relevance of the subject. A strong pedagogic approach is at the heart of Inorganic Chemistry. While worked examples take students through calculations and exercises step by step, the sets of self-study exercises and end-of-chapter problems reinforce learning and develop subject knowledge and skills. The end-of-chapter problems include sets of 'overview problems', and problems entitled 'inorganic chemistry matters' which use everyday material to illustrate the relevance of the material in each chapter. Definitions panels and end-of-chapter checklists offer students excellent revision aids. Further reading suggestions, from topical articles to recent literature papers, encourage students to explore topics in more depth.

In order to understand the basic aspects of an electrochemical investigation on inorganic molecules (in its widest meaning, of any molecule which contains at least one metal centre) it must be taken into account that in these molecules the metal-ligand bonds are of the prevailingly covalent type. Since electrochemical techniques allow you to add or remove electrons in a controlled manner, it is conceivable that the addition or removal of electrons inside these molecules can lead to the formation of new bonds or to the breakage of existing bonds. The main aim of this book is to study the effects of such electron addition and removal processes on the molecular frames. The second edition of this classic book has been fully revised and updated and is a straightforward, logical introduction to electrochemical investigations for inorganic chemists. All chapters have been rewritten with new material including: - the addition of reactivity with nitric oxide to the chapter on the reactivity of metal complexes with small molecules - thiolate-protected gold nanoclusters has been added to the chapter on metal-sulfur and metal-carbonyl clusters - a new chapter on the digital simulation of electrochemical responses - a new chapter on the theoretical calculations to explain the nature of the electrochemical activity of metal complexes - new chapters on spectroelectrochemistry and electrochemiluminescence. The book covers every aspect of inorganic electrochemistry - the introduction is followed by chapters on the basic aspects of electrochemistry followed by practical and applicative aspects and ends with full appendices. It is probably the only publication with a simple approach to electrochemical aspects of the topics in inorganic chemistry. Bridging the gap between undergraduate and research-level electrochemistry books, this publication will be a welcome addition to the literature of inorganic chemists. It will also be particularly useful to final year students in chemistry and as background reading for graduates and researchers without adequate electrochemical knowledge to become active in the discipline or who want to collaborate with electrochemists.

It will also be particularly useful to final year students in chemistry and as background reading for graduates and researchers without adequate electrochemical knowledge to become active in the discipline or who want to collaborate with electrochemists.

Due to their use and importance in many fields, a great deal of research focuses on developing inorganic materials. For example, a computer contains many types of inorganic materials, including the glass in the display or a layer of the LCD screen, the metal wires, and semiconductor materials in the chips and other electronic components. Computers can even be powered by solar cells, which also include inorganic materials. Zeolites also belong to this class and are found in applications ranging from catalysts to cat litter. This third edition of the popular textbook contains 30% new and/or revised content to reflect the latest developments in this fast developing field. Written from the chemist's point of view, the well-known and experienced authors provide a thorough and pedagogical introduction, now including example real-life applications of the syntheses, as well as new sections on nanomaterials, templating methods and biomineralization. A valuable resource for advanced undergraduates as well as masters and graduate students in inorganic chemistry and materials science.

"Written for students taking either the University of Cambridge A-level examinations or the International Baccalaureate examinations, this textbook covers essential topics under both stipulated chemistry syllabi. It is written in such a way as to guide the reader through the understanding and applications of essential chemical concepts by introducing a discourse feature-the asking and answering of questions-that stimulates coherent thinking and hence, elucidates ideas. Based on the Socratic Method, questions are implanted throughout the book to help facilitate the reader's development in forming logical conclusions of concepts. The book helps students to master fundamental chemical concepts in a simple way" --Back Cover.
"Topics are explored through an explanatory and inquiry-based approach. They are interrelated and easy to understand, with succinct explanations/examples being included, especially on areas that students frequently find difficult. Topics address the whys and hows behind key concepts to be mastered, so that the concepts are made understandable and intuitive for students. The focus is on conceptual learning so as to equip students with knowledge for critical learning and problem solving"--Back Cover.
"Existing A-level textbooks and guidebooks generally introduce concepts in a matter-of-fact manner. This book adds a unique pedagogical edge which few can rival. Through their many years of teaching experiences, the authors have acquired a sound awareness of common students' misconceptions which are relayed through the questions and thus help to reinforce concepts learnt" --Back Cover.

Shriver and Atkins' Inorganic Chemistry fifth edition represents an integral part of a student's chemistry education. With the same broad coverage as its predecessors - making it the ideal companion for the duration of an undergraduate degree programme - the fifth edition extends from the foundational concepts of inorganic chemistry to the forefront of contemporary research. The book seeks not just to impart knowledge, but to engage and enthuse its readers. Its unique 'Frontiers' chapters cover materials science, nanotechnology, catalysis, and biological inorganic chemistry, and have been fully updated to reflect advances in these key areas of contemporary research and industrial application. Further, examples throughout show the relevance of inorganic chemistry to real-life situations, to encourage students to engage fully with the subject. Inorganic chemistry spans a huge range of elements, whose characteristic similarities and differences students must be familiar with. Inorganic Chemistry rises to this challenge by setting out the key trends exhibited within the periodic table, and by the elements comprising each Group. These trends and behaviours are illuminated with illustrative examples, placing the content in a clear, relevant context. The Online Resource Centre contains 3D rotating molecular models, illustrations from the book in electronic format, web links, and additional questions. A solutions manual is available at no cost to adopters.

This book is a revised and updated English edition of a textbook that has grown out of several years of teaching. The term "inorganic" is used in a broad sense as the book covers the structural chemistry of representative elements (including carbon) in the periodic table, organometallics, coordination polymers, host-guest systems and supramolecular assemblies. Part I of the book reviews the basic bonding theories, including a chapter on computational chemistry. Part II introduces point groups and space groups and their chemical applications. Part III comprises a succinct account of the structural chemistry of the elements in the periodic table. It presents structure and bonding, generalizations of structural trends, crystallographic data, as well as highlights from the recent literature.
