This book entitled "Inorganic Chemistry-II", is an effort to present the subject matter in a comprehensible and easily understandable form. This textbook is purposefully prepared for the postgraduate Inorganic Chemistry second semester course and it covers all the topics recommended.
• Figures, tables and equations are used at appropriate positions to explain various aspects in a simple and logical manner.
• A large number of objective questions, short answer questions and long answer questions have been added at the end of each chapter
• For the convenience of students and other readers, glossary and index have also been inserted at the end of book.
