Undergraduates studying inorganic chemistry often find the terminology of the subject bewildering, and concepts difficult to summarise. This new book, part of the successful Oxford Chemistry Primers series, provides an alphabetical listing of concepts encountered by students in their studiesup to the end of the first year of their chemistry course. With each entry containing more information than can be found in a general chemistry dictionary, and written in a student-friendly and accessible style, every chemistry student should have a copy of this invaluable book on their desk.
D. M. P. Mingos is at Imperial College, London.

Editorial Reviews

`The style of the book is excellent; it has many useful illustrations and the level is just right for first-year students. The content is not too mathematical ... I strongly recommend this book to all first-year undergraduate chemistry students.'Chemistry in Britain, February 1996
