Now in its fifth edition, Housecroft & Sharpe's Inorganic Chemistry, continues to provide an engaging, clear and comprehensive introduction to core physical-inorganic principles. This widely respected and internationally renowned textbook introduces the descriptive chemistry of the elements and the role played by inorganic chemistry in our everyday lives. The stunning full-colour design has been further enhanced for this edition with an abundance of three-dimensional molecular and protein structures and photographs, bringing to life the world of inorganic chemistry. Updated with the latest research, this edition also includes coverage relating to the extended periodic table and new approaches to estimating lattice energies and to bonding classifications of organometallic compounds. A carefully developed pedagogical approach guides the reader through this fascinating subject with features designed to encourage thought and to help students consolidate their understanding and learn how to apply their understanding of key concepts within the real world. Features include: * Thematic boxed sections with a focus on areas of Biology and Medicine, the Environment, Applications, and Theory engage students and ensure they gain a deep, practical and topical understanding * A wide range of in-text self-study exercises including worked examples, reflective questions and end of chapter problems aid independent study * Definition panels and end-of-chapter checklists provide students with excellent revision aids * Striking visuals throughout the book have been carefully crafted to illustrate molecular and protein structures and to entice students further into the world of inorganic chemistry Inorganic Chemistry 5th edition is also accompanied by an extensive companion website, available at . This features multiple choice questions and rotatable 3D molecular structures.
