Summary

Summary

d- and f- Block Chemistry book provides the fundamentals of d- and f-block metals, including aspects of structure, bonding, chemical thermodynamics and spectroscopy, which underpin studies of the chemistry of these elements.  Aims to provide an introduction to the principles underlying the chemistry of the d- and f-block metals. It briefly describes the origins, uses, and importance of these elements before considering the factors underlying their chemical properties. It describes aspects of structure, bonding, chemical thermodynamics and spectroscopy, which underpin studies of the chemistry of these elements. Examples are drawn from different parts of the d- and f-blocks to illustrate particular points and study questions allow you to practice the application of the principles learned.
