A Textbook of Inorganic Chemistry for Colleges

    Article metrics


    IN the preparation of the second edition of this book, Prof. Norris has been assisted by a co-author whose interests lie in the field of inorganic chemistry. A special feature of the book is the careful development of the fundamental ideas of atomic structure, isotopes, electronic valency, radioactivity, modern dissociation theory, etc., in such a way that they fit naturally into the course, and so much is presented at each step as can readily be understood by the student. The modern theory of acids and bases is used.
