The author has tried to describe minimum chemical facts and concepts that are necessary to understand modern inorganic chemistry. The textbook describes important compounds systematically along the periodic table, and readers are expected to learn typical ones both in the molecular and solid states.

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.

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.
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.
by Peter G. Nelson - BookBoon
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.
