"Instant Notes "titles focus on core information and are designed to help undergraduate students come to grips with a subject quickly and easily. "Instant Notes in Inorganic Chemistry," "Second Edition "has been fully updated and new material added on recent developments in noble-gas chemistry and the synthesis, reactions and characterization of inorganic compounds. New chapters cover the classification of inorganic reaction types concentrating on those useful in synthesis; techniques used in characterizing compounds, including elemental analysis; spectroscopic methods (IR, NMR) and structure determination by X-ray crystallography; and the factors involved in choosing appropriate solvents for synthetic reactions. The new edition continues to provide concise, comprehensive coverage of inorganic chemistry at an undergraduate level, offering easy access to all important areas of inorganic chemistry in a format which is ideal for learning and rapid revision.
