Leading you from the fundamental principles of inorganic chemistry right through to cutting-edge research at the forefront of the subject, inorganic chemistry is the ideal course companion for the duration of your degree. Written by an experienced and research-active author team, the unique three part structure of this text provides comprehensive coverage of inorganic chemistry from fundamental theory through to cutting-edge interdisciplinary research, making this text the ideal companion for the duration of a student's degree. A comprehensive pedagogical framework is provided to support students, including 'notes on good practice', 'brief illustrations', 'context boxes', and 'key points'. Numerous worked examples, self-test questions, exercises, and tutorial problems encourage students to develop vital problem-solving skills. the artwork, which has been extensively refreshed for this edition, illustrates the impressive diversity of inorganic compounds and enables students to truly visualise the subject. the book is accompanied by a comprehensive online resource centre, which includes videos of chemical reactions, answers to exercises from the book, web links, and other useful resources for both students and lecturers. A completely new chapter on inorganic chemistry in medicine expands upon the biological inorganic chemistry previously included. substantial changes to the foundations section have been made, with clearer descriptions of many introductory topics and the inclusion of more descriptive transition metal chemistry. More self-test questions have been added, to enable students to check their understanding of key concepts. The text is augmented by a wider range of innovative online resources, with structures and figures from the book linked to resources on more cross references have been added in order to help students make connections between core topics.
