The book discusses bonding based on the overlap criterion of bond strength, the rigors of bonding being presented without developing the math. Expanded treatment of periodicity, reaction mechanisms, electronic spectroscopy, bioinorganic chemistry, catalysis and organometallic chemistry is given, along with the inclusion of three types of problems: review, additional challenging exercises and questions from the literature on inorganic chemistry.Hide synopsis
