This book consists of over 422 problems and their acceptable answers on structural inorganic chemistry at the senior undergraduate and beginning graduate level. The central theme running through these questions is symmetry, bonding and structure: molecular or crystalline. A wide variety of topics are covered, including Electronic States and Configurations of Atoms and Molecules, Introductory Quantum Chemistry, Atomic Orbitals, Hybrid Orbitals, Molecular Symmetry, Molecular Geometry and Bonding, Crystal Field Theory, Molecular Orbital Theory, Vibrational Spectroscopy, Crystal Structure, Transition Metal Chemistry, Metal Clusters: Bonding and Reactivity, and Bioinorganic Chemistry. The questions collected here originate from the examination papers and take-home assignments arising from the teaching of courses in Chemical Bonding, Elementary Quantum Chemistry, Advanced Inorganic Chemistry, and X-Ray Crystallography by the book's two senior authors over the past five decades. The questions have been tested by generations of students taking these courses. The questions in this volume cover essentially all the topics in a typical course in structural inorganic chemistry. The text may be used as a supplement for a variety of inorganic chemistry courses at the senior undergraduate level. It also serves as a problem text to accompany the book Advanced Structural Inorganic Chemistry, co-authored by W.-K. Li, G.-D. Zhou, and T. C. W. Mak (Oxford University Press, 2008).
Angesichts des immer mehr anwachsenden Kenntnisstands auf allen na turwissenschaftlichen Gebieten erscheint es unumgänglich, die Wissensver mittlung auf generelle Prinzipien und Gesetzmäßigkeiten zu konzentrieren und Einzeldaten auf wichtige Beispiele zu beschränken. Ein Lehrbuch soll einen angemessenen, dem Studierenden zumutbaren Umfang haben, ohne wesentliche Aspekte eines Fachgebiets zu vernachlässigen, es soll traditio nelles Grundwissen ebenso wie moderne Entwicklungen berücksichtigen. Diese Einführung macht den Versuch, die Anorganische Strukturchemie in diesem Sinne darzubieten. Dabei sind Kompromisse unvermeidbar, manche Teilgebiete werden kürzer, andere vielleicht auch länger geraten sein, als es dem einen oder anderen Fachkollegen angemessen erscheinen mag. Chemiker denken überwiegend in anschaulichen Modellen, sie wollen Strukturen und Bindungen "sehen". Die moderne Bindungstheorie hat sich ihren Platz in der Chemie erobert, sie wird in Kapitel 9 gewürdigt; mit ihren aufwendigen Rechnungen entspricht sie aber mehr der Denkweise des Physikers, außerdem ist sie oft noch unbefriedigend, wenn es darum geht, strukturelle Details zu verstehen oder gar vorauszusagen. Für den Alltags gebrauch des Chemikers sind einfache Modelle, so wie sie in den Kapiteln 7, 8 und 12 behandelt werden, nützlicher: "Der Bauer, der zu Lebzeiten ernten will, kann nicht auf die ab-initio-Theorie des Wetters warten. Che miker, wie Bauern, glauben an Regeln, verstehen aber diese listig nach Bedarf zu deuten" (H.G. von Schnering ).
Inorganic Chemistry "Catherine E. Housecroft and Alan G. Sharpe" This book has established itself as a leading textbook in the subject by offering a fresh and exciting approach to the teaching of modern inorganic chemistry. It gives a clear introduction to key principles with strong coverage of descriptive chemistry of the elements. Special selected topics chapters are included, covering inorganic kinetics and mechanism, catalysis, solid state chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry. A new full-colour text design and three-dimensional illustrations bring inorganic chemistry to life. Topic boxes have been used extensively throughout the book to relate the chemistry described in the text to everyday life, the chemical industry, environmental issues and legislation, and natural resources. Teaching aids throughout the text have been carefully designed to help students learn effectively. The many worked examples take students through each calculation or exercise step by step, and are followed by related self-study exercises tackling similar problems with answers to help develop their confidence. In addition, end-of-chapter problems reinforce learning and develop subject knowledge and skills. Definitions boxes and end-of-chapter checklists provide excellent revision aids, while further reading suggestions, from topical articles to recent literature papers, will encourage students to explore topics in more depth. New to this edition Many more self-study exercises have been introduced throughout the book with the aim of making stronger connections between descriptive chemistry and underlying principles. Additional 'overview problems' have been addedto the end-of-chapter problem sets. The descriptive chemistry has been updated, with many new results from the literature being included. Chapter 4 Bonding in polyatomic molecules, has been rewritten with greater emphasis on the use of group theory for the derivation of ligand group orbitals and orbital symmetry labels. There is more coverage of supercritical fluids and 'green' chemistry. The new full-colour text design enhances the presentation of the many molecular structures and 3-D images.
