The text will provide a set of problems covering mechanistic, structural and spectroscopic issues in inorganic chemistry. Specific areas to be covered include coordination chemistry, physiochemical aspects of solution chemistry, inorganic chemistry of biological systems (both natural biomolecules and bioinorganic models). Illustrative worked examples will be included. The problems will be categorized by topic chapters for ease of reference and use in courses. They will provide a valuable resource for instructors, providing a means of testing and developing the many principles covered in texts and advanced courses. Often students find it difficult to find practical problems to test the principles they have learned in class. This text will provide a series of questions to test understanding and worked examples as a pedagogical aid.

Editorial Reviews

This text for the beginning graduate and senior undergraduate student focuses on the key concepts and underlying principles of inorganic chemistry. It includes essential background information on physical methods and biochemistry, covers the biological chemistry of metal ions, and offers a review of reaction kinetics and thermodynamics. Additional topics include transient kinetic methods, ribozyme chemistry, and the iron regulatory protein. The author emphasizes chemical principles rather than the techniques employed.
