Includes expanded coverage of chemical bonding and enhanced treatment of Buckminster Fullerenes
Incorporates new industrial applications matched to key topics in the text
This book covers the synthesis, reactions, and properties of elements and inorganic compounds for courses in descriptive inorganic chemistry. It is suitable for the one-semester (ACS-recommended) course or as a supplement in general chemistry courses. Ideal for major and non-majors, the book incorporates rich graphs and diagrams to enhance the content and maximize learning.
Chemistry, biology and earth science students taking a sophomore or junior level inorganic or descriptive inorganic chemistry course. Also serves as a supplemental text to general chemistry courses.
