9780126785500: Inorganic Chemistry: An Industrial and Environmental Perspective

This book addresses the question, What is inorganic chemistry good for? rather than the more traditional question, How can we develop a theoretical basis for inorganic chemistry from sophisticated theories of bonding? The book prepares students of science or engineering for entry into the multi-billion-dollar inorganic chemical and related industries, and for rational approaches to environmental problems such as pollution abatement, corrosion control, and water treatment. A much expanded and updated revision of the 1990 text, Applied Inorganic Chemistry (University of Calgary Press), Inorganic Chemistry covers topics including atmospheric pollution and its abatement, water conditioning, fertilizers, cement chemistry, extractive metallurgy, metallic corrosion, catalysts, fuel cells and advanced batter technology, pulp and paper production, explosives, supercritical fluids, sol-gel science, materials for electronics, and superconductors. Though the book waswritten as a textbook for undergraduates with a background of freshman chemistry, it will also be a valuable sourcebook for practicing chemists, engineers, environmental scientists, geologists, and educators.

Key Features
* Presents the principles of inorganic chemistry in terms of its relevance to the real world of industry and environmental protection
* Serves as a concise reference for practicing scientists, engineers, and educators
* Emphasizes industrially relevant energetics and kinetics rather than bonding theories
* Features extensive cross-referencing for easy location of supporting material

From the Back Cover:

In a concise account of inorganic chemistry from the perspective of its immense economic and environmental importance, this text prepares students of science or engineering for entry into the multibillion dollar chemical and related industries. Coverage includes chemical energetics, agricultural chemicals, cement chemistry, metallic corrosion, catalysts, fuel cell and advanced battery technology, explosives, pulp and paper production, supercritical fluids, sol-gel science, materials for electronics, and superconductors. This book also provides the basis for rational approaches to environmental problems such as pollution abatement, corrosion control, and water treatment. Written as a textbook for undergraduates who have completed first-year chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry: An Industrial and Environmental Perspectiveis also a valuable sourcebook for practicing chemists, engineers, environmental scientists, geologists, and educators.

About the Author:

Thomas W. Swaddle received his B.Sc. at University College London in 1958, and his Ph.D. at the University of Leicester in 1961. He held two post-doctoral appointments in the United States before joining the academic staff at the University of Calgary in 1964. Swaddle has been a full professor at that institution since 1974. He is a Fellow of The Chemical Institute of Canada, The Royal Society of Chemistry, and The American Association for the Advancement of Science. Swaddle is a member of The American Chemical Society and Sigma Xi, and was made a Senior Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science in 1984. He is also Wilsmore Fellow of the University of Melbourne (1988), and Killam Resident Fellow at the University of Calgary (1995). Swaddle has authored more than 100 research articles; this is his second book.
