Inorganic Chemistry – Catherine E. Housecroft, Alan G. Sharpe – 2nd Edition


A leading textbook which offers a fresh and engaging approach to the teaching of modern inorganic chemistry and gives a clear, well-balanced introduction to the key principles of the subject. The brand new full-colour text design with three-dimensional illustrations brings the subject to life. Students are able to relate the chemistry they learn to everyday life through numerous applications and topic boxes.
