House’s Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry; 3rd Edition; provides thoroughly updated coverage of the reactions; synthesis; and properties of elements and inorganic compounds. Ideal for the 1-semester (ACS-recommended) sophomore or junior level course in descriptive inorganic chemistry; this resource offers a readable and engaging survey of the broad spectrum of topics that deal with the properties; preparation; and use of inorganic materials.

Using rich graphics to enhance content and maximize learning; the PDF ebook covers the chemical behavior of the elements; coordination chemistry; acid-base chemistry; organometallic compounds; and numerous other topics to provide a coherent treatment of the field. The etextbook pays special attention to key subjects such as chemical bonding and Buckminster Fullerenes; and includes new and expanded coverage of active areas of research; such as bioinorganic chemistry; redox chemistry; nanostructures; green chemistry; and more.

  • Connects key topics to real world industrial applications; such as in the area of nanostructures
  • Highlights the Earth’s crust as the source of most inorganic compounds and explains the transformations of those compounds into useful products
  • Includes expanded coverage on bioinorganic chemistry; green chemistry; superacids; redox chemistry; catalysis; and other areas of recent development
  • Provides a coherent treatment of the field; covering the chemical behavior of the elements; acid-base chemistry; coordination chemistry; and organometallic compounds
