In the newly revised Second Edition of Principles of Inorganic Chemistry, experienced researcher and chemist Dr. Brian W. Pfennig delivers an accessible and engaging exploration of inorganic chemistry perfect for sophomore-level students. This redesigned book retains all of the rigor of the first edition but reorganizes it to assist readers with learning and retention. In-depth boxed sections include original mathematical derivations for more advanced students, while topics like atomic and molecular term symbols, symmetry coordinates in vibrational spectroscopy, polyatomic MO theory, band theory, and Tanabe-Sugano diagrams are all covered.

Readers will find many worked examples throughout the text, as well as numerous unanswered problems at varying levels of difficulty. Informative, colorful illustrations also help to highlight and explain the concepts discussed within.

The new edition includes an increased emphasis on the comparison of the strengths and weaknesses of different chemical models, the interconnectedness of valence bond theory and molecular orbital theory, as well as a more thorough discussion of the atoms in molecules topological model.
