About the Book

Satya Prakash's Modern Inorganic Chemistry is a treatise on the chemistry of elements on the basis of latest theories of Chemistry. Initial chapters are devoted to the study of fundamentals of Chemistry such as structure of atom, periodic classification of elements, chemical bonding and radioactivity, to name a few. It further graduates to complex discussions not only on extraction, properties and uses of the elements but also on preparation, properties, uses and structure of their important compounds. Chemistry of elements and their compounds have been explained on the basis of their position in the long form of periodic table and their electronic configurations/structures. Special emphasis has been put on the
discussion of the correction between the structure and properties of elements/ compound. The book caters to the requirements of Bachelor in Science (Pass) courses. With detailed discussion on several advanced topics, the students of Bachelor in Science (Honours) and Masters in Science would also find it extremely
