Review: "An attractive feature is the extent to which the author relates inorganic chemistry to other areas.... Wulfsberg offers an original and engaging perspective on inorganic chemistry."

Journal of Chemical Education


"Wulfsberg’s text introduces the key concepts of inorganic chemistry in the way that most students want to see them (and that they were developed) as empirical observations. Once the observations are mastered, the text moves to a discussion of the theoretical model (or models) consistent with the observations. Bioinorganic and environmental applications of inorganic chemistry are brought in at the point that they are appropriate. This is a stimulating text, and one that warrants serious consideration for adoption."


James Penner-Hahn, University of Michigan 


Description: Wulfsberg’s new Inorganic Chemistry is ideal for use as the primary textbook in the junior-, senior- and introductory graduate-level sequence of inorganic chemistry courses. With a clear descriptive approach that seamlessly integrates bioinorganic, environmental, geological, and medicinal material into each chapter, there is much to like about this contemporary text. Also refreshing is an empirical approach to problems in which the text emphasizes observations before moving on to theoretical models. Because Part I of the book explains chemical concepts and reactions using Valence Bond theory, it may be used by students who have not had physical chemistry; thus Part I of the book is also recommended for use in a one-semester introductory course. Part II covers all traditional topics of an advanced inorganic course for chemistry majors including symmetry, molecular orbital theory, transition metal chemistry, organometallic chemistry, inorganic materials and mechanisms, and bioinorganic chemistry.
