The Chemistry of the Metallic Elements provides a concise yet comprehensive discussion of the structural principles of metallic elements. The book also provides tables that layout the data concerning the more common metals and their compounds. The text first covers the general information about the metallic elements, such as their physical properties, chemical properties, occurrence, and extraction. The subsequent chapters detail the elements and their compounds in context to their structure, and position in the periodic table and in the electrochemical series. The book will be of great use to researchers and practitioners of chemistry and chemical engineering.
