Introduction to Inorganic Chemistry
Publisher: Wikibooks 2014
This textbook is intended for use in a first semester course in inorganic chemistry, covering the basic concepts in structure, bonding, and properties that underlie the field. The objective of this book is for students to understand how to use valence bond theory, crystal field theory, and molecular orbital theory to describe bonding in inorganic compounds, learn periodic trends in redox and acid-base equilibria, and learn the structures of solid elements and simple compounds.

The noble gases make a group of chemical elements with similar properties: under standard conditions they are all odorless, colorless, monatomic gases with very low chemical reactivity. The six noble gases: helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, radon.

It has been the aim of the authors to prepare a text-book constructed along lines which have become recognized as best suited to an elementary treatment. At the same time they have made a consistent effort to make the text clear in outline.

I have tried to make selection of the most fundamental facts and principles of chemistry, and to present these in such a way that the student must constantly use his senses to discover facts and his reason in drawing correct inferences.
