Inorganic Chemistry – Shriver & Atkins – 5th Edition


Shriver and Atkins’ Inorganic fifth edition represents an integral part of a student’s chemistry education. With the same broad coverage as its predecessors – making it the ideal companion for the duration of an undergraduate degree programme – the fifth edition extends from the foundational concepts of inorganic chemistry to the forefront of contemporary research.

The book seeks not just to impart knowledge, but to engage and enthuse its readers. Its unique ‘Frontiers’ chapters cover materials science, nanotechnology, catalysis, and biological inorganic chemistry, and have been fully updated to reflect advances in these key areas of contemporary and industrial application. Further, examples throughout show the relevance of inorganic to real-life situations, to encourage students to engage fully with the subject. Inorganic chemistry spans a huge range of elements, whose characteristic similarities and differences students must be familiar with.

Inorganic rises to this challenge by setting out the key trends exhibited within the periodic table, and by the elements comprising each Group. These trends and behaviours are illuminated with illustrative examples, placing the content in a clear, relevant context. The Online Resource Centre contains:

For students: for group theory – comprehensive group theory tables available for downloading Videos of chemical reactions – Video clips demonstrating some key chemical experiments Web links – web links to a range of additional physical resources on the web 3D rotatable molecular structures – nearly all of the numbered structures from the book in rotatable format Answers to self-tests and exercises For registered adopters of the book: Artwork and of data – versions of the figures, structures and tables from the book are available to Figures in PPT – almost all of the figures are available in PPT Molecular modelling Test bank – in Word format
