This book focuses on two main topics in fundamental structural chemistry: the properties of chemical bonding derived from the behavior of the microscopic particles and their wave functions, and the three-dimensional molecular and crystal structures. The principle that "structure determines properties and properties reflect structures" is clearly demonstrated. This book emphasizes practical examples linking structure with properties and applications which provide invaluable insight for students, thus stimulating their mind to deal with problems in the topics concerned.


The basic knowledge of quantum mechanics; the structure and properties of an atom; the structure and properties of diatomic molecules; symmetry in molecules; the structures and properties of polyatomic molecules; the structures and properties of complexes; crystal lattice and crystal properties; the structure and properties of metals; structural chemistry of ionic compounds; the structural chemistry of non-metals.
