The Fifth Edition retains the pedagogical strengths that made the previous editions so popular, and has been updated, reorganized, and streamlined. Changes include more accessible introductory chapters (with greater stress on the logic of the periodic table), earlier introduction of redox reactions, greater emphasis on the concept of energy, a
This is one of the few books available that uses unifying theoretical concepts to present inorganic chemistry at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels--most texts are organized around the periodic table, while this one is structured after bonding models, structure types, and reaction patterns. But the real strength of Porterfield's
