The Chemical Bond in Inorganic Chemistry

The Bond Valence Model

I. David Brown

International Union of Crystallography Monographs on Crystallography

The bond valence model is a recently developed model of the chemical bond in inorganic chemistry that complements the bond model widely used in organic chemistry. it is simple, quantitive, intuitive, and predictive - no more than a pocket calculator is needed to calculate it. This book focuses on the theory that underlies the model, and shows how it has been used in physics, materials science, chemistry, mineralogy, soil science, and molecular biology.
