From the Back Cover:

Housecroft & Sharpe's Inorganic Chemistry is established as the leading textbook in the field and has been fully updated in this third edition.  Designed as a student text, Inorganic Chemistry focuses on teaching the underlying principles of inorganic chemistry in a modern and relevant way.

 

Within a single text, Inorganic Chemistry provides a balanced introduction to core physical-inorganic principles and to the descriptive chemistry of the elements.  Using worked examples and self-study exercises, Inorganic Chemistry reinforces the links between these two key themes.   Special selected topics chapters are also included, covering inorganic kinetics and mechanism, catalysis, solid state chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry.  New to this edition is a section on carbon nanotubes included in the chapter dealing with solid state chemistry.

 

Inorganic Chemistry  has been carefully designed with teaching aids throughout to enhance learning.  A stunning full-colour text design and three-dimensional illustrations bring inorganic chemistry to life.  Topic boxes have been used extensively to relate the chemistry to issues in everyday life, the chemical industry, the environment and legislation, and natural resources.  New to this edition are also experimental techniques boxes  introducing physical methods such as diffraction methods, computational chemistry, ESR spectroscopy and HPLC. 

 

Numerous worked examples take students through each calculation or exercise step by step. They are followed by related self-study exercises, complete with answers, to help build further confidence.  New self-study exercises have been added throughout the book.  End-of-chapter problems (including 'overview' 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, encourage students to explore topics in more depth.
