Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Supporting the third edition

  • Companion Website available at www.pearsoned.co.uk/housecroft  Featuring multiple choice questions (including additional questions for this edition)and rotatable 3-D molecular structures.
  • PowerPoint figures and tables for lecturers.
  • A short Guide for Lecturers written by Catherine E. Housecroft.
  • A Solutions Manual, written by Catherine E. Housecroft, with detailed solutions to all end-of-chapter problems within the text is available for separate purchase,  ISBN 978-0-13-204849-1.

 

 

Catherine E. Housecroft is Professor of Chemistry at the University of Basel, Switzerland.  She is the author of a number of textbooks and has extensive teaching experience in the UK, Switzerland, South Africa and the USA.  Alan G. Sharpe is a Fellow of Jesus College, University of Cambridge, UK and has had many years of experience teaching inorganic chemistry to undergraduates.  

Synopsis:

Designed as a student text, Inorganic Chemistry focuses on teaching the underlying principles of inorganic chemistry in a modern and relevant way.

Synopsis:

This updated solutions manual contains detailed worked solutions to the problems contained in the third edition of Inorganic Chemistry.

Key features

  • Solutions to all end-of-chapter problems and overview problems, including problems new to the third edition
  • Bullet-point essay plans
  • General notes giving further explanation of particular topics and tips on completing problems
  • Cross-references to the main text and to other relevant problems
  • Margin notes for guidance
  • High-quality graphs, structures and diagrams
  • Includes Periodic Table, Table of Atomic Masses and Table of Physical Constants for reference

This manual is a useful tool in helping students to grasp problem-solving skills and should prove invaluable to both lecturers and students who are using the main Inorganic Chemistry text.
