Concise Inorganic Chemistry U. K - J.D. Lee
The fifth edition of this classic textbook has been extensively revised, but remains faithful to the principles that established it as a favourite among teachers and students around the world. The book is divided into six parts: theoretical concepts and hydrogen, the s-block, the p-block, the d-block, the f-block, and other topics (the nucleus and spectra). An important aspect of the book is its focus on the commercial exploitation of inorganic chemicals, something other textbooks do not cover,

The Chemical Tree: A History of Chemistry - William H. Brock, A.W. Hofmann
In this authoritative volume, a New York Times Notable Book of 1993, scientific researcher and historian William Brock recounts the astonishing rise of a sophisticated science. Tracing the roots of chemistry back to the alchemists' futile attempts to turn lead into gold, he follows the emergence of the modern study of chemistry through the works of Boyle, Lavoisier, and Dalton, and the twentieth-century breakthroughs of Linus Pauling and others. This timely, comprehensive history examines the

Chemical Principles - Steven S. Zumdahl
Although Chemical Principles is intended for students with solid mathematical preparation and prior exposure to chemistry, the author does not assume that students have a sophisticated grasp of chemical concepts. Approximately 20 percent of the boxed essays are new, presenting everyday applications of chemistry with an emphasis on engineering applications. To create more effective teaching tools, more than 100 illustrations—with a key focus on molecular-level illustrations—have been
