Physical Inorganic Chemistry Set (0470580224) cover image
The two books within the set consist chapters that focus on methods, tools, and techniques of physical inorganic chemistry and describe some fundamental reaction types and treatments of reaction mechanisms. They also deal with some complex reactions and processes related to such critical topics as energy, catalysis, materials, atmosphere, environment, and health.
