The author has tried to describe minimum chemical facts and concepts that are

necessary to understand modern inorganic chemistry. All the elements except superheavy

ones have been discovered and theoretical frameworks for the bonding, structure and

reaction constructed. The main purposes of inorganic chemistry in near future will be the

syntheses of the compounds with unexpected bonding modes and structures, and

discoveries of novel reactions and physical properties of new compounds.

More than ten million organic compounds are known at present and infinite number

of inorganic compounds are likely to be synthesized by the combination of all the

elements. Recently, really epoch making compounds such as complex copper oxides

with high-temperature superconductivity and a new carbon allotrope C60 have been

discovered and it is widely recognized that very active research efforts are being devoted

to the study of these compounds. By the discoveries of new compounds, new empirical

laws are proposed and new theories are established to explain the bondings, structures,

reactions, and physical properties. However, classical chemical knowledge is essential

before studying new chemistry. Learning synthetic methods, structures, bondings, and

main reactions of basic compounds is a process requisite to students.

This text book describes important compounds systematically along the periodic

table, and readers are expected to learn typical ones both in the molecular and solid states.

The necessary theories to explain these properties of compounds come from physical

chemistry and basic concepts for learning inorganic chemistry are presented in the first

three chapters.

Inorganic chemistry is of fundamental importance not only as a basic science but

also as one of the most useful sources for modern technologies. Elementary substances

and solid-state inorganic compounds are widely used in the core of information,

communication, automotive, aviation and space industries as well as in traditional ones.

Inorganic compounds are also indispensable in the frontier chemistry of organic synthesis

using metal complexes, homogeneous catalysis, bioinorganic functions, etc. One of the

reasons for the rapid progress of inorganic chemistry is the development of the structural

determination of compounds by X-ray and other analytical instruments. It has now

become possible to account for the structure-function relationships to a considerable

extent by the accumulation of structural data on inorganic compounds. It is no

exaggeration to say that a revolution of inorganic chemistry is occurring. We look

forward to the further development of inorganic chemistry in near future.

The present text is a translation from a Japanese text book in the series of


introductory courses for the freshman, and junior students. The series has been welcome

widely in Japan since their first publication in 1996 as unique approaches to modern

chemistries that are becoming too complex to learn during the short period of university

courses. This internet version is intended to offer free textbooks for those students who

have little access to the printed version and we hope that readers will benefit from this

experimental edition. The author expresses his acknowledgments to Professor Yoshito

Takeuchi for his efforts to realize the project and Iwanami Publishing Company to

approve the publication of the internet edition without claiming a copyright for
