"Instant Notes in Inorganic Chemistry" provides a concise yet comprehensive introduction to inorganic chemistry, providing easy access to the core information in the field. Inorganic chemistry can claim to be a peculiarly broad subject, dealing with the descriptive chemistry of all the elements, together with some general principles which provide a framework and enable the detailed facts to be seen in context. The early parts of the book cover background materials including atomic structure, bonding in molecules and solids, and general principles of reactivity. The later parts cover the descriptive chemistry of different areas of the periodic table. Part of the interest in inorganic chemistry lies in its relevance in the world outside the laboratory, including environmental, biological and industrial areas, so the book includes brief mentions of these aspects under individual elements, and also as separate topics in the final section. The text assumes a background roughly equivalent that of a university general chemistry course. The author has made the account as accessible as possible by keeping mathematics to a minimum. It also features multiple choice questions and answers to test understanding. If you are studying inorganic chemistry and need an easy to understand text "Instant Notes in Inorganic Chemistry" is the lifeline you need to help you understand the subject.
