9780131755536: Inorganic Chemistry

A market leading textbook offering a fresh and engaging approach to the teaching of modern inorganic chemistry while giving a clear, well-balanced introduction to the key principles of the subject.

The full-colour text design with three dimensional illustrations brings the subject to life.  Throughout the book students are able to reinforce their learning with the use of worked examples and self-study exercises.  Numerous applications and topic boxes also relate the chemistry to everyday life.

Review:

To put it short, this is THE BOOK, that I would like to use in Inorganic Chemistry. The book contains all the information needed. Furthermore, it is well and logically presented. The problems related with each chapter are good; and the suggestions for further reading are highly relevant.”
Markku Sundberg, Helsinki University, Finland

"I've had one of my students take a look at the book and I virtually had to tear it from his hands in order to get it back!"
Professor Nikolaus Korber, University of Regensburg, Germany

Housecroft--Sharpe has been the far most superior contemporary inorganic chemistry textbook there is. It was the case of the 1st edition and it remains so for the 2nd edition. The book is also a very good comprehensive text for chemists in general, PhD students and researchers. Clearly, students may prefer the more colorful 2nd edition, and so will their teachers for pedagogical reasons.”
Pavel Karen, Oslo University, Norway

“My tutorial group students… thought that the addition of colour was a major improvement relative to the 1st edition. I thought that the section on Group Theory and symmetry is much better handled in the 2nd edition.”
Mary Mahon, Bath University, UK

“Undoubtedly, the new colour format makes the book seem more attractive to the reader; I noted that the descriptive chemistry has been updated also. It is pleasing that the authors continue to provide a broad coverage of chemistry throughout the Periodic Table while maintaining a reasonable size of book. One of the most important features (and one that recommended the book to us as a text) is that topics are presented in a straightforward manner, making them accessible to the less able students.
Professor John Winfield, Glasgow University, UK

From the Back Cover:

Housecroft & Sharpe's Inorganic Chemistry is established as the leading textbook in the field and has been fully updated in this third edition.  Designed as a student text, Inorganic Chemistry focuses on teaching the underlying principles of inorganic chemistry in a modern and relevant way.

 

Within a single text, Inorganic Chemistry provides a balanced introduction to core physical-inorganic principles and to the descriptive chemistry of the elements.  Using worked examples and self-study exercises, Inorganic Chemistry reinforces the links between these two key themes.   Special selected topics chapters are also included, covering inorganic kinetics and mechanism, catalysis, solid state chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry.  New to this edition is a section on carbon nanotubes included in the chapter dealing with solid state chemistry.

 

Inorganic Chemistry has been carefully designed with teaching aids throughout to enhance learning.  A stunning full-colour text design and three-dimensional illustrations bring inorganic chemistry to life.  Topic boxes have been used extensively to relate the chemistry to issues in everyday life, the chemical industry, the environment and legislation, and natural resources.  New to this edition are also experimental techniques boxes  introducing physical methods such as diffraction methods, computational chemistry, ESR spectroscopy and HPLC. 

 

Numerous worked examples take students through each calculation or exercise step by step. They are followed by related self-study exercises, complete with answers, to help build further confidence.  New self-study exercises have been added throughout the book.  End-of-chapter problems (including 'overview' problems) reinforce learning and  develop subject knowledge and skills.  Definitions boxes and end-of-chapter checklists provide excellent revision aids while further reading suggestions, from topical articles to recent literature papers, encourage students to explore topics in more depth.

 

New to this edition

  • The coverage of 'basic concepts' has been split into two chapters (Chapters 1 and 2).
  • Updated coverage of recent advances in basic inorganic chemistry.
  • Improved coverage of the use group theory in infrared spectroscopy (Chapter 4), of charge transfer bands and UV-VIS spectroscopy (Chapter 21), of term symbols and microstates (Chapter 21), and of magnetism (Chapter 21).
  • New sections on superacids (Chapter 9) and carbon nanotubes (Chapter 28).
  • Many new self-study exercises have been added to the descriptive chemistry chapters.  
  • New experimental techniques boxes.
  • Updated applications and resources, environmental and biological boxes.  In selected boxes, photographs have been  included for the first time.
