This book uses unifying theoretical concepts to present inorganic chemistry at the advanced undergraduate and graduate level. Most texts are organized around the periodic table, while this one is structured after bonding models, structure types and reaction patterns. This second edition presents ample background description, especially in recent areas of development such as cluster molecules, industrial catalysis and bio-inorganic chemistry. This information should enable students to understand most current journals, empowering them to stay abreast of the latest advances in the field. Specific improvements of the second edition include new chapters on materials-science applications and bio-inorganic chemistry, an extended discussion of transition-metal applications (including cuprate superconductors) and extended Tanabe-Sugano diagrams. The book also includes extended treatment of inorganic materials science - ceramics, refractories, magnetic materials, superconductors - in the context of solid-state chemistry, and extended coverage of biological systems and their chemical and physiological consequences - 02 metabolism, N2 fixation, muscle action, iron storage, cisplatin and nucleic acid structural probes and photosynthesis. It covers unusual structures and species - silatranes, metallacarboranes, alkalides and electrides, vapor-deposition species, proton and hybride sponges, massive transition-metal clusters and agostic ligands and examines industrial processes using organometallic catalysts and their mechanisms. It also examines entropy-driven reactions and contains a complete discussion of inorganic photochemistry.
