9780716776956: Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry

The best-selling text introduces inorganic chemistry in a less strenuous, less mathematical way. The book uses the periodic table as basis for understanding chemical properties, and uncovering relationships between elements in different groups. It familiarizes students with the historical background of inorganic chemistry, as well as with crucial applications (especially in regards to industrial processes and environmental issues). The fourth edition features expanded coverage and an improved pedagogy. The supplements are: "Instructor's Resource" CD-ROM (0-7167-6176-9); and "Student Solutions Manual" (0-7167-6177-7).
