Now in its fifth edition, Housecroft & Sharpe's Inorganic Chemistry is a well-respected and leading international textbook. This Solutions Manual accompanies the main text and provides model answers to the end-of-chapter problems, linking to relevant sections and figures in the main text as appropriate. Solutions in this manual are fully worked, making them of maximum benefit to students during in-course assessment and end-of-course examination problems. Using the Solutions Manual will reinforce learning and develop subject knowledge and skills. The solutions are referenced into the literature and diagrams are simplified to coach students in how to achieve a similar style in their own work.
