About The Book

The second volume, Inorganic Chemistry comprising 23 chapters, is devoted to the chemistry of first 103 elements and their principal compounds. The arrangement of contents is markedly different from that adopted in the other text books. The plan adopted begins with a series of chapters covering all the necessary general and experimental components of the subject, starting with the history, occurrence, isotopes and physical and chemical behaviour and commercial applications of elements is in accordance with their IUPAC Periodic Classification.
