Inorganic Chemistry – Catherine E. Housecroft, Alan G. Sharpe – 3rd Edition


A market leading textbook offering a fresh and engaging approach to the teaching of modern inorganic chemistry while giving a clear, well-balanced introduction to the key principles of the subject.

The full-colour text design with three dimensional illustrations brings the subject to life.
Throughout the book students are able to reinforce their learning with the use of worked examples and self-study exercises. Numerous applications and topic boxes also relate the chemistry to everyday life.
