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.   Catherine E. Housecroft is Professor of Chemistry at the University of Basel, Switzerland.  She is the author of a number of textbooks and has had teaching experience in the UK, Switzerland, South Africa and the USA. She has published around 500 research papers and reviews, and her current research interests include aspects of coordination chemistry associated with solar energy conversion, solid state lighting, water oxidation, porous coordination polymers and networks and hierarchical assemblies.

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 Further reading suggestions, from topical articles to recent literature papers, encourage students to explore topics in more depth. Includes the ‘IUPAC Brief Guide to the Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry’ for helpful reference.

Updated to incorporate recent advances in basic inorganic chemistry. The periodic table inside the cover of this book includes the extension of the table with the completed last row. Sections in relevant chapters have been updated to include these new ‘super-heavy’ elements. Updates to Chapter 6 to include the volume-based thermodynamic (VBT) approach to lattice energies. Chapter 24 includes revised coverage of electron-counting and bonding to incorporate the Covalent Bond Classification of ligands and organometallic compounds. The three-dimensional molecular structures have been reworked in a more modern style design to provide extra clarity and further bring to life the world of inorganic chemistry.
