This textbook provides essential information for students of inorganic chemistry or for chemists pursuing self-study. The presentation of topics is made with an effort to be clear and concise so that the book is portable and user friendly. Inorganic Chemistry 2E is divided into five major themes (structure, condensed phases, solution chemistry, main group and coordination compounds) with several chapters in each. There is a logical progression from atomic structure to molecular structure to properties of substances based on molecular structures, to behavior of solids, etc. The author emphasizes fundamental principles-including molecular structure, acid-base chemistry, coordination chemistry, ligand field theory, and solid state chemistry -and presents topics in a clear, concise manner. There is a reinforcement of basic principles throughout the book. For example, the hard-soft interaction principle is used to explain hydrogen bond strengths, strengths of acids and bases, stability of coordination compounds, etc. The book contains a balance of topics in theoretical and descriptive chemistry. New to this Edition: New and improved illustrations including symmetry and 3D molecular orbital representations Expanded coverage of spectroscopy, instrumental techniques, organometallic and bio-inorganic chemistry More in-text worked-out examples to encourage active learning and to prepare students for their exams • Concise coverage maximizes student understanding and minimizes the inclusion of details students are unlikely to use. • Discussion of elements begins with survey chapters focused on the main groups, while later chapters cover the elements in greater detail. • Each chapter opens with narrative introductions and includes figures, tables, and end-of-chapter problem sets.

Inorganic Chemistry easily surpasses its competitors in sheer volume and depth of information. Readers are presented with summaries that ease exam preparation, an extensive index, numerous references for further study, six invaluable appendixes, and over 150 tables that provide important data on elements at a quick glance. Now in its 101st printing, Inorganic Chemistry provides an authoritative and comprehensive reference for graduate students, as well as chemists and scientists in fields related to chemistry such as physics, biology, geology, pharmacy, and medicine. Translated for the first time into English, Holleman and Wiberg's book is a bestseller in Germany, where every chemist knows and values it. Prior to this translation, there was no equivalent to Holleman and Wiberg's book in English.

Advances in Inorganic Chemistry presents timely and informative summaries of the current progress in a variety of subject areas within inorganic chemistry, ranging from bio-inorganic to solid state. This acclaimed serial features reviews written by experts in the area and is an indispensable reference for advanced researchers. Each volume of Advances in Inorganic Chemistry contains an index, and each chapter is fully referenced.
Reflecting the growing volume of published work in this field, researchers will find this book an invaluable source of information on current methods and applications.
Advanced Inorganic Chemistry: Applications in Everyday Life connects key topics on the subject with actual experiences in nature and everyday life. Differing from other foundational texts with this emphasis on applications and examples, the text uniquely begins with a focus on the shapes (geometry) dictating intermolecular forces of attractions, leading to reactivity between molecules of different shapes. From this foundation, the text explores more advanced topics, such as: Ligands and Ligand Substitution Processes with an emphasis on Square-Planar Substitution and Octahedral Substitution Reactions in Inorganic Chemistry and Transition Metal Complexes, with a particular focus on Crystal-Field and Ligand-Field Theories, Electronic States and Spectra and Organometallic, Bioinorganic Compounds, including Carboranes and Metallacarboranes and their applications in Catalysis, Medicine and Pollution Control. Throughout the book, illustrative examples bring inorganic chemistry to life. For instance, biochemists and students will be interested in how coordination chemistry between the transition metals and the ligands has a direct correlation with cyanide or carbon monoxide poisoning (strong-field Cyanide or CO ligand versus weak-field Oxygen molecule). Engaging discussion of key concepts with examples from the real world Valuable coverage from the foundations of chemical bonds and stereochemistry to advanced topics, such as organometallic, bioinorganic, carboranes and environmental chemistry Uniquely begins with a focus on the shapes (geometry) dictating intermolecular forces of attractions, leading to reactivity between molecules of different shapes

The present title Inorganic Chemistry has been designed for undergraduate and postgraduate of all Indian Universities. The aim of this book is to provide a concise modern text of inorganic chemistry which is large enough to cover the essentials, yet short enough to be interesting. It provides a simple and logical theoretical framework into which the reader should be able to fit his factus knowledge. There has been considerable interest in organo-metallic compounds, some of which are manufactured on a large scale. There has also been great interest in the role of inorganic materials in biological system (chlorophyll, hemoglobin, vitamin B12 and nitrogen, fixation) and a public awareness of the toxicity of various materials, most notably lead and mercury.

With its updates to quickly changing content areas, a strengthened visual presentation and the addition of new co-author Paul Fischer, the new edition of this highly readable text is more educational and valuable than ever. Inorganic Chemistry, 5/e delivers the essentials of Inorganic Chemistry at just the right level for today's classroom -- neither too high (for novice readers) nor too low (for advanced readers). Strong coverage of atomic theory and an emphasis on physical chemistry provide a firm understanding of the theoretical basis of inorganic chemistry, while a reorganized presentation of molecular orbital and group theory highlights key principles more clearly.
