This highly readable text provides the essentials of Inorganic Chemistry at a level that is neither too high nor too low. Praised for its coverage of theoretical inorganic chemistry, it discusses molecular symmetry earlier than other texts and builds on this foundation in later chapters. Plenty of supporting book references encourage you to further explore topics of interest.
Standard textbook for an upper level course emphasizes molecular orbitals and symmetry in nearly every aspect of bonding and reactivity. Examples and exercises are included within the chapters, with answers to the examples in the chapters and answers to the exercises in an appendix. Annotation c.
