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).
In dem Lehrbuch für Studenten der Chemie werden wichtige Aspekte und Zusammenhänge der Strukturen anorganisch-chemischer Verbindungen dargelegt. Die Strukturmerkmale von Molekülverbindungen wie auch von Festkörpern werden behandelt und an anschaulichen Beispielen erläutert. So weit wie möglich werden diese Strukturen mit einfachen und eingängigen Theorien erklärt (Gillespie-Nyholm-Theorie, Ligandenfeldtheorie, Ionenradienverhältnisse, Pauling-Regeln, (8-N)-Regel u.ä.), es wird aber auch auf die moderne Bindungstheorie eingegangen. Wichtige Festkörperstrukturen werden wiederholte Male und dabei jedes Mal von einem anderen Standpunkt betrachtet. Zusammenhänge zwischen Struktur und physikalischen Eigenschaften werden herausgearbeitet.

The fifth edition of this widely acclaimed work has been reissued as part of the Oxford Classic Texts series. The book includes a clear exposition of general topics concerning the structures of solids, and a systematic description of the structural chemistry of elements and their compounds. The book is divided into two parts. Part I deals with a number of general topics, including the properties of polyhedra, the nature and symmetry of repeating patterns, and the ways in which spheres, of the same or different sizes, can be packed together. In Part II the structural chemistry of the elements is described systematically, arranged according to the groups of the Periodic Table.
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.

Inorganic Chemistry, Second Edition, provides essential information for students of inorganic chemistry or for chemists pursuing self-study. The presentation of topics is made with an effort to be clear and concise so that the book is portable and user friendly. The text emphasizes fundamental principles—including molecular structure, acid-base chemistry, coordination chemistry, ligand field theory, and solid state chemistry. It is organized into five major themes (structure, condensed phases, solution chemistry, main group and coordination compounds) with several chapters in each. There is a logical progression from atomic structure to molecular structure to properties of substances based on molecular structures, to behavior of solids, etc. The textbook contains a balance of topics in theoretical and descriptive chemistry. For example, the hard-soft interaction principle is used to explain hydrogen bond strengths, strengths of acids and bases, stability of coordination compounds, etc. Discussion of elements begins with survey chapters focused on the main groups, while later chapters cover the elements in greater detail. Each chapter opens with narrative introductions and includes figures, tables, and end-of-chapter problem sets. This new edition features new and improved illustrations, including symmetry and 3D molecular orbital representations; expanded coverage of spectroscopy, instrumental techniques, organometallic and bio-inorganic chemistry; and more in-text worked-out examples to encourage active learning and to prepare students for their exams. This text is ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level students enrolled in the Inorganic Chemistry course. This core course serves Chemistry and other science majors. The book may also be suitable for biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, and other professionals who wish to learn more about this subject area. Concise coverage maximizes student understanding and minimizes the inclusion of details students are unlikely to use Discussion of elements begins with survey chapters focused on the main groups, while later chapters cover the elements in greater detail Each chapter opens with narrative introductions and includes figures, tables, and end-of-chapter problem sets
