In a concise account of inorganic chemistry from the perspective of its immense economic and environmental importance, this text prepares students of science or engineering for entry into the multibillion dollar chemical and related industries. Coverage includes chemicals energetics, agricultural chemicals, cement chemistry, metallic corrosion, catalysts, fuel cell and advanced battery technology, explosives, pulp and paper production, supercritical fluids, sol-gel science, materials for electronics, and superconductors. This book also provides the basis for rational approaches to environmental problems such as pollution abatement, corrosion control, and water treatment. Written as a textbook for undergraduates who have completed first-year chemistry. Inorganic Chemistry: An Industrial and Environmental Perspectives is also a valuable sourcebook for practicing chemists, engineers, environmental scientists, geologists, and educators.
