This outline of the principles and chemical interactions in inorganic solution chemistry delivers a course module in an area of considerable complexity. Problems with solutions and tutorial hints to test comprehension have been added as a feature to check readers' understanding and assist self-study. Exercises and projects are also provided to help readers deepen and extend their knowledge and understanding.

  • Inorganic solution chemistry is treated thoroughly
  • Emphasis is placed upon NMR, UV-VIS, IR Raman spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and such topics as acid-base behaviour, stability constants and kinetics

Industry Reviews

John Burgess, a well respected chemist, covers principles and chemical interactions of inorganic solution chemistry in a student-friendly style. So much of core inorganic chemistry in the book provides lecturers with a student development basis and brain-storming tutorial sessions. It is recommended as the backbone for a module in an undergraduate honors degree chemistry course., Education in Chemistry
The book contains a wealth of data and examples in tabular and graphical format. Does a very good job discussing subtle and practical considerations for investigating ions in solution. It presents theoretical and background information with brief and to-the-point explanations, no wasted words. A supplement for graduate or advanced senior-level courses, and a very good reference on inorganic solution chemistry., Chemical Education Today USA
Dr Burgess writes extremely well and is informative on all aspects. I shall recommend it as a book which undergraduates should certainly consult, and from which many will profit., University of Glasgow
