Today, industries such as microelectronics depends on inorganic chemical techniques for producing high purity films on single crystal chips. Their, however, is just the tip of the iceberg. With intensified funding in research and improving tools and techniques, the scope of inorganic chemistry is continually widening to bring within purview such issues such as understanding the role of transition metals in the biochemical catalysts called enzymes.
This book, designed to cater to the needs of both graduate and post-graduate students in chemistry, strives to bring forth a comprehensive —organic and inorganic compounds, non-metallic chemistry, solid-state chemistry, metallic chemistry, etc., in a thorough manner, paying special attention to the relevance it holds in contemporary research issues. In-depth explanation of concepts and principles, complemented with detailed diagrams and illustrations, combine to make this book an ideal referral for all.
