This is an adaptation of the classic book Concise Inorganic Chemistry by J.D. Lee (fifth edition) which is widely used by IIT-JEE aspirants. This adapted version provides a more concise treatment of the subject as per IIT-JEE syllabus requirements without compromising on essentials. The explanation of fundamental concepts is simple and straightforward, offering a right blend of theory and applications.
Three additional chapters: Hydrolysis, Metallurgy and Qualitative Salt Analysis have been included to make the coverage complete. Apart from this many topics have been included in the chapters. These include, melting point, solubility, electrical conductivity, colour and stability of ionic compounds; back bonding and bridge bonding; weak forces; interactions between ionic and covalent compounds; among others. The highlight of the adaptation is new end of chapter exercises containing all question types as per IIT-JEE pattern along with their answers provided at the end of each chapter.
Three new chapters: Hydrolysis, Metallurgy and Qualitative Salt Analysis.
