    This is a concise and complete coverage of the various concepts of Inorganic Chemistry.

    Summary Of The Book

    This book, Concise Inorganic Chemistry, begins by covering SI units and nomenclatures in the Periodic table. Then, the subject content of the book is divided into six parts. After the main coverage, there is an extensive appendix section, a total of 15 appendices.

    The six main parts are Theoretical Concepts and Hydrogen, The S-Block Elements, The P-Block elements, The D-Block Elements, The F-Block Elements, and Other Topics.

    The first part, Theoretical Concepts and Hydrogen, consists of chapters such as atomic structure and the periodic table, introduction to bonding, the ionic bond, the covalent bond, the metallic bond, general properties of the elements, coordination compounds, and hydrogen and the hydrides.
    Part two, The S-Block Element, covers group 1 - the alkali metals, the chlor-alkali industry, and group 2 - the alkaline earth elements. Part three, The P-Block Element, covers the group 13 elements, the group 14 elements, the group 15 elements, group 16 - the chalcogens, group 17 - the halogens, and group 18 - the noble gases.

    Part four, The D-Block Elements, covers an introduction to the transition elements, group 3 - the scandium group, group 4 - the the titanium group, group 5 - the vanadium group, group 6 - the chromium group, group 7 - the manganese group, group 8 - iron group, group 9 - the cobalt group, group 10 - the nickel group, group 11 - the copper group, coinage metals, and group 12 - the zinc group.

    Part five, The F-Block Element, covers the lanthanide series, and the actinides. Part seven, Other Topics, consists of the atomic nucleus and spectra.

    There are a total of 15 appendices. These are A: Abundance of the elements in the Earth’s crust, B: Melting points of the elements, C: Boiling points of the elements, D: Densities of the solid and liquid elements, and E: Electronic structures of the elements.

    The next five are F: Some average single bond energies, and some double and triple bond energies, G: Solubility of main group compounds in water, H: Atomic weights based on 12C = 12000, I: Values of some fundamental physical constants, and J: Electrical resistivity of the elements at the stated temperature.

    The last five appendices are K: Top fifty chemicals in the USA, 1994, L: Inorganic chemicals manufactured in large tonnages worldwide, M: Minerals used in large amounts, N: Hardness of minerals - Mohs’ scale, and O: Standard textbooks.

    The presentation is interesting, it is never dull or drab. The author uses the correct blend of theory and application, tilting more towards the practical rather than theoretical. This book is a good reference material for college and university courses, and can be used as preparation material for entrance exams for postgraduate courses.

    a must read book to understand concepts...

    A must read books for chemistry'll get everything you want in this book to understand chemistry in better way....student like me who never understood chemistry was able to not only understand chemistry but to solve the numric based and iit jee problems from other books and packages of reputed coaching institutes (like fiit jee,narayana,etc) after reading this book....

    » better than its other edition which is for iit jee.
    » better than other books of inorganic chemistry.

    A brilliant book for Inorganic Chemistry which should be read by the students.

    This is surely the best and most interesting introduction to inorganic chemistry that I have come across. If this does not get you interested in the subject, I don't know what will.I have used it to prepare for entrance exams, for college and university courses and for general reading. It starts with an overview of basic principles of bonding and trends in the periodic table. The rest of the book is then devoted to the discussion of individual groups of elements. But this is no drab discussio...

    Excellent Book For inorganic Chemistry!! Inorganic Made interesting!!!

    This book is a masterpiece and all the points are covered going to the deepest level possible.For JEE and IIT alike this book is very helpful but there are a lot of topics which are out of the syllabus for JEE.If you love inorganic chemistry and want to study it from the DNA this book will certainly help you a lot.Infact,I found the first topic to be atomic structure which we do not normally find in inorganic books which shows the indepth explanation of inorganic chemistry.But for Entrance ex...

    Ah this book is bonafied perfect i love this.

    this book is the commercial secrets of some top coaching institute for making of their study material in inorganic chemistry part, this book does'nt contain any error, but remember its level is high and for competitive purpose i have used it only for reference,and this book is written in self explanatory manner mean you dont need any teacher for reading this, you can read it yourself but you must have read ncert once.

    Excellent for curious readers

    This book on inorganic chemistry is the best i have seen. I am myself a chemistry student and i think the book is good enough to be kept as a reference for ANY confusion. Readers will find it extremely ineresting, full of minute details (for example, the s,p,d, and f orbitals have been explained WITH their full form, namely Sharp, Principal,Diffused and Fundamental.) The book is recommended for beforehand studying for higher secondary school and competitive exams. THE ONLY DRAWBACK IS THAT IT...
