Elements by P. A. Cox
Book DescriptionThis study examines the origins of the chemical elements which are the basic building blocks of ordinary matter. The text explores the factors controlling their widely differing abundances, and their distribution in the Earth, solar system and universe. The text begins with a broad introduction to the range of elements which exist and a consideration of some of their nuclear and chemical properties. An account of the origins of the elements in space is followed by a chapter on cosmochemistry and the solar system. Attention is then focused on the Earth and the distribution of elements on the planet's surface: in the minerals of the crust, in the ocean, and in living species.

Books By Author P. A. Cox
Transition Metal Oxides, Paperback (August 2010)
Transition metal oxides form a series of compounds with a uniquely wide range of electronic properties. The main aim of this book is to describe the varied electronic behaviour shown by transition metal oxides, and to discuss the different types of theoretical models that have been proposed to interpret this behaviour.
Surface Science of Metal Oxides, Paperback (March 1996)
The first book to give a comprehensive account of the fundamental properties of metal-oxide surfaces.
Introduction to Quantum Theory and Atomic Structure, Paperback (January 1996)
This book presents an introduction to the quantum theory at a level appropriate to university students in chemistry. The required background in physics and mathematics is kept at a minimum, the emphasis being on the physical ideas and their application in chemistry, especially to atoms and to the periodic table of the elements.
Electronic Structure and Chemistry of Solids, Paperback (June 1987)» View all books by P. A. Cox
Shows how the electronic structures and properties of solids can be described in terms familiar to chemists. This book contains topics such as metal-insulator transitions, low-dimensional solids and 'molecular metals', and the properties of surfaces. It is for undergraduate students with a reasonable grounding in inorganic and physical chemistry.
