Abstract:

This text is designed to focus on the properties of selected ... important and unusual elements and compounds. However, to understand inorganic chemistry, it is crucial to tie this knowledge to the underlying chemical principles and hence provide explanations for the existence and behavior of compounds. For this reason, almost half the chapters survey the relevant concepts of atomic theory, bonding, intermolecular forces, thermodynamics, acid-base behavior, and reduction-oxidation properties as a prelude to and preparation for the descriptive material.-Pref.
