Inorganic Chemistry

Wulfsberg's new Inorganic Chemistry is ideal for use as the primary textbook in the junior-, senior- and introductory graduate-level sequence of inorganic chemistry courses. With a clear descriptive approach that seamlessly integrates bioinorganic, environmental, geological, and medicinal material into each chapter, there is much to like about this contemporary text. Also refreshing is an empirical approach to problems in which the text emphasizes observations before moving on to theoretical models. Because Part I of the book explains chemical concepts and reactions using Valence Bond theory, it may be used by students who have not had physical chemistry; thus Part I of the book is also recommended for use in a one-semester introductory course. Part II covers all traditional topics of an advanced inorganic course for chemistry majors including symmetry, molecular orbital theory, transition metal chemistry, organometallic chemistry, inorganic materials and mechanisms, and bioinorganic chemistry. Worked examples and solutions in each chapter combine with chapter-ending study objectives, 40-70 exercises per chapter, and experiments for discovery-based learning to make this, in the words of one reviewer, "an outstanding new text." This remarkable book even appears as set dressing in Universal Pictures motion picture, The Incredible Hulk with Nick Nolte. Ancillaries A detailed Instructors' Manual is available for adopting professors. Art from the book may be downloaded by adopting professors.
