Problems in Structural Inorganic Chemistry

Second Edition

Wai-Kee Li, Hung Kay Lee, Dennis Kee Pui Ng, Yu-San Cheung, Kendrew Kin Wah Mak, and Thomas Chung Wai Mak

  • Provides over 400 problems and their solutions, covering a wide range of topics in structural inorganic chemistry including Atomic and Molecular Electronic States, Hybrid Orbitals, Molecular Orbital Theory, Vibrational Spectroscopy, and Crystal Structure
  • Addresses a wide variety of disciplines, from quantum mechanics to bioinorganic chemistry, and levels, from fundamental to application
  • Many of the problems are open-ended and answers provided lead to further studies
  • Individual reference citations for about 150 problems
  • Appendices serve as teaching material
  • Problems can easily be modified by teachers and adapted to the level and emphasis of their courses
  • Accompanies the authors' textbook Advanced Structural Inorganic Chemistry (OUP 2008)

New to this Edition:

  • Over 100 new problems added
  • New chapters on Transition Metal Chemistry, Metal Clusters: Bonding and Reactivity, and Bioinorganic Chemistry
  • A new Chapter 2, "Introductory Quantum Chemistry," groups previous questions on "particle-in-a-box" and "particle-on-a-ring" together with new questions.
  • Includes a new appendix, "Selected Topics in Bioinorganic Chemistry"
