"Inorganic Chemistry gives an introduction to key principles with strong coverage of descriptive chemistry of the elements. Special selected topics chapters are included covering kinetics and mechanism, catalysis solid state chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry." "The two-colour text and three-dimensional illustrations bring inorganic chemistry to life, with over 140 topic boxes, many covering applications of inorganic chemicals in industry, day-to-day life and the laboratory, and environmental and biological 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, 560 end-of-chapter problems reinforce learning and develop subject knowledge and skills. Definitions boxes, checklists and chapter summaries provide excellent revision aids while further reading suggestions from tropical articles to recent literature papers will encourage students to explore topics in more depth.
