Topics covered: Relative importance of different elements; Metals and nonmetals; Binary compounds; Types of formula; Classification of elements according to the electrochemical series; Valency; Pseudo-binary compounds; The Periodic Table; etc.
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.
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.
