Inorganic chemistry is a core part of the chemistry curricula, though it is often felt to be a huge range of disparate facts that have little underlying organization or reasoning. The periodic table was developed in the latter part of the 19th century, providing an organizing structure which began to explain the underlying principles of inorganic chemistry The Periodic Table at a Glance provides a concise overview of the main principles and reactions of inorganic chemistry, carefully structured around the periodic table, for students studying chemistry and related courses at undergraduate level. Based on the highly successful and student friendly "at a glance" approach, the information is presented in integrated, self contained double page spreads of text and illustrative material, to facilitate the rapid assimilation, understanding and recall of critical concepts, facts and definitions. Students wanting a comprehensive and accessible overview of inorganic chemistry will find this book an ideal source of the information they require. In addition, the structured presentation will provide an invaluable aid to revision for students preparing for examinations.

This is primarily a revision guide to assist undergraduate students in their study of degree level introductory inorganic chemistry. The coverage is similar to that of most modern texts, with more on theoretical and physical aspects than on descriptive chemistry, and more on molecules (eg boron hydrides) than non-molecular substances (such as metal carbides). There are however outlines of important industrial processes." Chemistry World, November 2006 "The strengths of this text are that the writing style is clear and descriptive and that the book is well organised around key topics. The authors have concentrated on presenting facts rather than concepts. Given its strengths, this book should appeal to students looking for a way to organise their thoughts about inorganic chemistry in the period leading up to exams." Mark Winter
