Organized to facilitate reference to the reagents involved, this book describes the reactions of the elements and their mostly simpler compounds, primarily inorganic ones and primarily in water. It emphasizes the similarities and differences in actual chemical behavior, as opposed to electronic structures and theories, although not exclusively.

Inorganic Reactions in Water again makes available some of the more comprehensive coverage of descriptive aqueous chemistry found in older sources, but now corrected and interpreted with the added insights of the last seven decades. It also provides new information, including reactions of the recently discovered elements, plus some recent data on equilibria, often with mostly qualitative kinetic information, to interpret the redox and non-redox phenomena that complicate the chemistry of most elements in water.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews: "Water . has an incredibly rich and interesting chemistry. Rich . explores that complexity by describing the aqueous chemistry of all the elements. The result is an impressive tour de force that integrates recent research, including reactions of newly discovered elements, with reevaluated information from the older standard references. . This organization is probably more useful for the practicing synthetic chemist . . One must admire the thoroughness of this presentation . . Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate student through professional inorganic chemistry library collections." (H. E. Pence, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), August, 2008)
