5 Reviews
Inorganic Chemistry easily surpasses its competitors in sheer volume and depth of information. Readers are presented with summaries that ease exam preparation, an extensive index, numerous references for further study, six invaluable appendixes, and over 150 tables that provide important data on elements at a quick glance.

Now in its 101st printing, Inorganic Chemistry provides an authoritative and comprehensive reference for graduate students, as well as chemists and scientists in fields related to chemistry such as physics, biology, geology, pharmacy, and medicine.

Translated for the first time into English, Holleman and Wiberg's book is a bestseller in Germany, where every chemist knows and values it. Prior to this translation, there was no equivalent to Holleman and Wiberg's book in English.
