Inorganic chemistry is concerned with the chemical elements (of which there are about 100) and the extremely varied compounds they form. The essentially descriptive subject matter is unified by some general concepts of structure, bonding and reactivity, and most especially by the periodic table and its underlying basis in atomic structure.
The rapid development of inorganic chemistry makes ever more challenging the task of providing a textbook that is contemporary and meets the needs of those who use it. We appreciate the constructive suggestions provided by students, faculty, and reviewers, and have adopted much of this advice, keeping in mind the constraints imposed by space and the scope of the book. The main emphasis in preparing this edition has been to bring it up to date while providing clarity and a variety of helpful features.

Ideally, the first activity provides the necessary know-how for the pursuit of the second, but in practice,
the help it can give is only partial, and the second activity has to fall back on trial and error techniques in
order to achieve its ends. This means that a good chemist is one who not only has a mastery of chemical
theory, but also a good knowledge of chemical facts.
