This book consists of over 300 problems (and their solutions) in structural inorganic chemistry at the senior undergraduate and beginning graduate level. The topics covered comprise Atomic and Molecular Electronic States, Atomic Orbitals, Hybrid Orbitals, Molecular Symmetry, Molecular Geometryand Bonding, Crystal Field Theory, Molecular Orbital Theory, Vibrational Spectroscopy, and Crystal Structure. The central theme running through these topics is symmetry, molecular or crystalline.The problems collected in this volume originate in examination papers and take-home assignments that have been part of the teaching of the book's two senior authors' at The Chinese University of Hong Kong over the past four decades. The authors' courses include Chemical Bonding, Elementary QuantumChemistry, Advanced Inorganic Chemistry, X-Ray Crystallography, etc. The problems have been tested by generations of students taking these courses.
Wai-Kee Li obtained his B.S. degree from the University of Illinois in 1964 and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Michigan in 1968. He joined The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) as a Lecturer in 1968 and retired as Professor of Chemistry in 2006. He now holds the title of Emeritus Professor of Chemistry and has remained m...
