After the run-away success of the book on 'Coordination Chemistry' the authors have decided to venture on the next book. This book is an honest attempt to write about the next phase of Inorganic Chemistry to complete full circle in the knowledge of Inorganic Chemistry.

At the first instance, this book has devoted a full chapter to carve out the contents and domain of Inorganic Chemistry. The book on Coordination chemistry deals with the knowledge of metals their important compounds and their applications and importance in life.

This book has been divided into three parts. Phase one of the book dwells on the basic concepts in inorganic chemistry which are so important to clearly understand the mechanism, structure and applications of inorganic compounds.

Phase two of this book lays emphasis on the study of Hydrogen, alkali and alkaline earth metals.

Phase three deals with the extensive study of the p-block elements (mostly non-metals). The study of p-block elements is inclusive of the study of their compounds, the properties of the compounds, their structures and applications in our life.

This section deals with the study of 80 percent of non-metals while the rest are metals. In brief, the study of p-block elements is broadly mentioned as the study of non-metals. In every group in the p-block elements the behavior of elements transcends from non-metals to metals. The last element at the bottom of the every group is mostly a metal except in halogens and zero group elements.The authors are known for their simple and lucid style of writing. They have easily put across their knowledge and ideas to the readers. Their communication is crisp and precise. We are sure the vast community of readers will become richer in knowledge and ideas by going through this book.

Key Features:

1. The language of the book is easy to understand and content is written in continuity, making the reader more comfortable in moving from one topic to another.

2. The book provides concise and effective discussion on included content.

3. This book also provides supporting data in the form of illustrations, tables, and reactions so as to make the topic easy to understand.

4. Derivations, proofs, results, theories, and numericals are all included

5. The book has development of the subject from basic to advanced levels
