Inorganic Chemistry by Duward Shriver in pdf


Free download Inorganic Chemistry (6th edition) written by Duward Shriver, Mark Weller, Tina Overton, Jonathan Rourke and Fraser Armstrong in PDF published in 2014.

As per authors, “Our aim in the sixth edition of Inorganic Chemistry is to provide a comprehensive and contemporary introduction to the diverse and fascinating subject of inorganic chemistry. Inorganic chemistry deals with the properties of all of the elements in the periodic table. 

These elements range from highly reactive metals, such as sodium, to noble metals, such as gold. The nonmetals include solids, liquids, and gases, and range from the aggressive oxidizing agent fluorine to unreactive gases such as helium. 

Although this variety and diversity are features of any study of inorganic chemistry, there are underlying patterns and trends which enrich and enhance our understanding of the discipline. 

These trends in reactivity, structure, and properties of the elements and their compounds provide an insight into the landscape of the periodic table and provide a foundation on which to build a detailed understanding.” As per a user review, “Very good book if you want a solid understanding of inorganic chemistry. 

I also have ‘Inorganic Chemistry’ 4th edition by Housecroft and Sharpe. While Housecroft is a comprehensive textbook on the subject, and I’ve certainly have acquired a robust and extensive grounding in many important topics, I love the setting, structure, and style of Inorganic Chemistry by Weller, 6th edition, much more. 

The way everything is set out and written, makes the subject much more fun and interesting, and I’m breezing through the topics because of this. 

If you want to succeed in inorganic chemistry, but enjoy it also, I would highly encourage everyone to obtain this book. By the way, the textbook I’m reviewing, is the cheaper international copy which was shipped from India. 

There is no colour and the pages are of cheaper quality. I’ve recently obtained the original version, and my enthusiasm for inorganic chemistry has quadrupled. Excellent paper quality, binding, and beautiful colour.” 

Inorganic Chemistry provides numerous learning features to help you master this wide ranging subject. In addition, the text has been designed so that you can either work through the chapters chronologically, or dip in at an appropriate point in your studies. The text’s Book Companion Site provides further electronic resources to support you in your learning. 

The material in this book has been logically and systematically laid out, in three distinct sections. 

Part 1, Foundations, outlines the underlying principles of inorganic chemistry, which are built on in the subsequent two sections. 

Part 2, The elements and their compounds, divides the descriptive chemistry into ‘essentials’ and ‘detail’, enabling you to easily draw out the key principles behind the reactions, before exploring them in greater depth. 

Part 3, Frontiers, introduces you to exciting interdisciplinary research at the fore front of inorganic chemistry. The paragraphs below describe the learning features of the text and Book Companion Site in further detail.
