This bestselling etextbook; titled “Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry 6th edition” gives college students a less rigorous; less mathematical way of learning inorganic chemistry; using the periodic table as a context for exploring chemical properties and uncovering relationships between elements in different groups. The awesome authors help chem students understand the relevance of the subject to their lives by covering both the fascinating contemporary applications and historical development of inorganic chemistry (especially in regard to environmental issues and industrial processes). The latest new 6th edition offers new study tools; expanded coverage of biological applications; and new help with problem-solving.
