Inorganic Reactions in Water
Organized to facilitate reference to the reagents involved, this book describes the reactions of the elements and their mostly simpler compounds, primarily inorganic ones and primarily in water. It emphasizes the similarities and differences in actual chemical behavior, as opposed to electronic structures and theories, although not exclusively.
Inorganic Reactions in Water again makes available some of the more comprehensive coverage of descriptive aqueous chemistry found in older sources, but now corrected and interpreted with the added insights of the last seven decades. It also provides new information, including reactions of the recently discovered elements, plus some recent data on equilibria, often with mostly qualitative kinetic information, to interpret the redox and non-redox phenomena that complicate the chemistry of most elements in water.
Fundamental for anyone who works with chemistry in waterUp-to-date reference work directed specifically to this need - related books have other emphasis
