Systematic Inorganic Chemistry: from the Standpoint of the Periodic Law

    Naturevolume 128page209 (1931) | Download Citation



    CAVEN and Lander's textbook has been known to teachers and students for some years as a carefully written statement of inorganic chemistry based on the periodic system, and it could well supplement any other book in use. It is particularly suited to the needs of the more advanced student who wishes to revise and systematise his knowledge of the subject, and a new edition of the work may be welcomed. The authors have added sections on the modern atomic theory and its bearings on the subject at the end of the book. In view of the rapid changes which are taking place in this part of the subject, it is undoubtedly wise to adopt this plan, the permanent structure of the science being dealt with in the body of the work. The additional sections fit in very well with the general plan of the book. One or two newer discoveries probably came too late for inclusion for example, the preparation of nitryl chloride, the reactions given not leading to the formation of this substance. The new edition of this excellent textbook may be recommended to teachers and students.
