Inorganic Chemistry of Main Group Elements / Edition 1

Dr. King has won several awards and honors, including Fellow of theAlfred P. Sloan Foundation, American Chemical Society Award in PureChemistry, Nato Senior Fellowship, and American Chemical SocietyAward in Inorganic Chemistry.

His book provides a summary of the most important aspects of thedescriptive inorganic chemistry of the main group elements, namelyall of the elements except for the d-block transition metals.

Organized by element, making it easy to assimilate the importantaspects of the chemistry of a particular element, many structuraldiagrams and chemical equations are given to illustrate structuresand chemical reactions making this the first source of generalinformation research workers will turn to.

Many chapters include the following: a summary of the typicalcoordination number, oxidation states, bonding types, etc. found inthe elements covered; important properties of the free elementsincluding a discussion of allotropic forms; discussions of halides,oxides, oxyacids, organimetallic derivatives, and other compoundtypes in separate sections.
