Description:

Main Group Chemistry covers the chemistry of the s- and p-block elements, together with a brief chapter on the chemistry of zinc, cadmium, and mercury, often classified as main group elements. The Periodic Table is an important predictive tool in main group chemistry and in this book forms the basis for describing the trends and variations in the chemistry of elements.
