Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...It can be said without doubt that Wiberg has succeeded again in the 101st printing. The new Holleman-Wiberg Inorganic Chemistry can be highly recommended to all students of chemistry..., as well as professionals."
"This edition not only delivers the most comprehensive and extensive Holleman-Wiberg, but it is also the single most comprehensive inorganic chemistry textbook on the market."
From The Critics
This comprehensive, detailed text has been a standard in the German-speaking world for more than 100 printings and is here made available in English for the first time since its initial publication in 1900; the translation is from the 34th (1995) edition. Covering all aspects of the subject, this hefty reference is aimed at both beginners and sophisticated readers and uses two sizes of type to distinguish basic from advanced information. After basic principles, the book covers the preparation, structure, and reactivity of inorganic compounds, with supporting material reviewing molecular, metal complex, solid state, nuclear, technical, metallo-organic, and bioinorganic chemistry. Founding editor Holleman (1859-1953) was affiliated with the U. of Groningen, Netherlands; Egon Winberg (chemistry, U. of Munich) took over as editor in 1943. This edition is edited by Nils Wiberg of the Universit√§t M√ľnchen. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
