1. Structural Chemistry, 2nd Edition to their offering.
This revised and updated Second Edition looks at new developments and research results within structural inorganic chemistry inorganic chemistry, the study of all the elements and their compounds with the exception of carbon and its compounds, which fall under the category of organic chemistry. in a number of ways. Special attention is paid to crystalline solids Crystalline solids are a class of solids that have regular or nearly-regular crystalline structures. This means that the atoms in these solids are arranged in an orderly manner. and elucidation e·lu·ci·date

To give an explanation that serves to clarify. and description of the spatial order of atoms within a chemical compound. Structural principles of inorganic molecules and solids are described through traditional concepts and modern bond-theoretical theories, as well as taking symmetry as a leading principle.
The 2nd Edition is built on the success of the first edition. The overall structure of the book will remain the same with one major change: the chapter on Symmetry (formerly Chapter 18) will be moved to the front of the book. The text will be thoroughly revised and new developments and research results will update the overall text. The author will try to keep the book about the same size. The first edition had 264 pages and the second edition is planned to be 280 - 300 pages. The book should still be of the size that a student can read it from the first to the last page. This textbook covers the area of Structural Inorganic Chemistry in a number of ways, with special attention paid to crystalline solids. It deals with the elucidation and description of the spatial order of atoms within a chemical compound. Also, the structural principles of inorganic molecules and solids will be described through traditional concepts, modern bond-theoretical theories, as well as taking symmetry as a leading principle.
2 Description of Chemical Structures.
4 Polymorphism polymorphism, of minerals, property of crystallizing in two or more distinct forms. Calcium carbonate is dimorphous (two forms), crystallizing as calcite or aragonite. Titanium dioxide is trimorphous; its three forms are brookite, anatase (or octahedrite), and rutile. and Phase Transition.
5 Structure, Energy and Chemical Bonding.
6 The Effective Size of Atoms.
7 Ionic Compounds In chemistry, an ionic compound is a chemical compound in which ions are held together in a lattice structure by ionic bonds. The positively charged ion is usually a metal ion and the negatively charged ion is non-metallic element or molecule. .
8 Molecular Structures I: Compounds of Main Group Elements.
9 Molecular Structures II: Compounds of Transition Metals.
10 Molecular Orbital Theory molecular orbital theory, detailed explanation of how electrons are distributed in stable molecules. In the simpler valence theory of the chemical bond, each atom in a molecule is assumed to retain its own electrons. and Chemical Bonding in Solids.
11 The Elements Structures of the Nonmetals.
12 Diamonds-like Structures.
13 Polyaniotic and Polycationic Compounds, Zintl Phases In chemistry a Zintl phase is the product of a reaction between
14 Packing of Spheres, Metal Structures.
15 The Sphere-packing Principle for Compounds.
16 Linked Polyhedra.
17 Packings of Spheres with Occupied Interstices.
18 Symmetry as the Organizing Principle for Crystal Structures.
19 Physical Properties of Solids.
