Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry

Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This bestselling text introduces descriptive inorganic chemistry in a less rigorous, less mathematical way.  The book uses the periodic table as basis for understanding chemical properties and uncovering relationships between elements in different groups.  Unique in Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry is the chapter tying numerous trends and commonalities between the groups. 

 

Rayner-Canham and Overton's text also familiarizes students with the historical background of inorganic chemistry as well as with its crucial applications (especially in regard to industrial processes and environmental issues), resulting in a comprehensive appreciation and understanding of the field and the role it will play in their fields of further study.
