A comprehensive, contemporary literature review.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Advanced Inorganic Chemistry: A Comprehensive Text (Hardcover)
The title of this book should warn people as to the content.
This is an 'Advanced ' inorganic chemistry book. To me, it is of the most value to final year and post-graduate students and students studying at a lower level should consider purchasing another book.
I found it gave a nice introduction into a vast amount of research which is going on today in the field of inorganic chemistry. It also mixes togeter the areas of coordination, organometallic and materials chemistry as well as what could be called pure inorganic chemistry.
I recommend it to all post graduate chemists who wish to develop a more holistic view of their subject rather than finding themselves confined to their own narrow topic. There are full references provided. Even though it is a huge book, it only gives a relatively small amount of detail, so the references are essential. Also, the majority of references are for quite recent publications. While some people say that this book has been butchered since the last edition, I have to disagree, it's a much more exiting read now.
