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.

Water is the simplest compound of the two most common reactive elements, consisting of just two hydrogen atoms attached to a single oxygen atom. Liquid water, however, is the most extraordinary substance. This is a comprehensive online book on water.
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.
This textbook is intended for a first semester course in inorganic chemistry, covering the basic concepts in structure, bonding, and properties that underlie the field. The objective is to understand valence bond theory, crystal field theory, etc.
