JD Lee Inorganic Chemistry is concise and covers JEE essentials!



                                                                       

JD Lee Chemistry book is very good for JEE preparation as well as preparation of other engineering entrance exams. It is quite concise, covers the entire JEE syllabus and does not compromise on the essentials of Inorganic Chemistry. The book includes a lot of multiple-choice questions (MCQs), assertive-type questions as well as single-choice questions for students’ practice. The detailed answers given to the problems at the end of each chapter help students to clarify their concepts and have step-by-step understanding of how to handle such problems in the future.

 

Concise Inorganic Chemistry has an interesting and contrite presentation. A shrewd mix of theory and application of chemistry, the book is a little more practical-oriented. It is a good reference book for college students too.

 

Topics covered in the book are: 

The book  begins with introduction of SI units and nomenclatures in the Periodic Table, and is then divided into six parts:

 

  • Theoretical Concepts and Hydrogen, which covers atomic structure and the periodic table, introduction to bonding, the ionic bond, the covalent bond, the metallic bond, general properties of the elements, coordination compounds, and hydrogen and the hydrides.
  • The S-Block Elements, which covers Group 1 elements - the alkali metals, the chlor-alkali industry, and Group 2 elements - the alkaline earth elements.
  • The P-Block elements, which covers Group 13, 14, 15, 16 (chalcogens), 17 (halogens), and 18 (noble gases) elements).

The D-Block Elements, which covers an introduction to the transition elements, Group 3 (scandium group), 4 (titanium group), 5 (vanadium group), 6 (chromium group), 7 (manganese group), 8 (iron group), 9 (cobalt group), 10 (nickel group), 11 (copper group and coinage metals), and 12 (zinc group) elements.

  • The F-Block Elements, which covers the lanthanide series and the actinides.
  • Other Topic which delves into the atomic nucleus and spectra.

 

After the main coverage, the book has a total of 15 appendices:

 

  • A: Abundance of the elements in the Earth’s crust,
  • B: Melting points of the elements,
  • C: Boiling points of the elements,
  • D: Densities of the solid and liquid elements,
  • E: Electronic structures of the elements,
  • F: Some average single bond energies, and some double and triple bond energies,
  • G: Solubility of main group compounds in water,
  • H: Atomic weights based on 12C = 12000,
  • I: Values of some fundamental physical constants,
  • J: Electrical resistivity of the elements at the stated temperature,
  • K: Top fifty chemicals in the USA, 1994,
  • L: Inorganic chemicals manufactured in large tonnages worldwide,
  • M: Minerals used in large amounts,
  • N: Hardness of minerals - Mohs’ scale, and
  • O: Standard textbooks.

 

The assessment questions have been framed according to the JEE pattern, making Inorganic Chemistry by JD Lee highly useful for JEE aspirants. The best covered topics in JD Lee Inorganic Chemistry are Preparation and Properties of Compounds, Ores and Minerals, and Transition Elements.

 

However, for Metallurgy, students might need to refer to books other than Inorganic Chemistry by JD Lee. You can also download JD Lee Inorganic Chemistry pdf online.
