This laboratory manual offers a broad introduction to the synthetic methods of inorganic chemistry. Solid state reactions and metallurgical processes, as well as the synthesis of coordination compounds, polyoxometallates, colloid systems and porous solids are included. With the help of over 80 selected compounds the book introduces the chemistry student to a wide range of basic preparative techniques such as synthesis between -15° and 2000 °C, reactions in the solid state, solution, melt and gas, and simple characterization methods of the products obtained.
