Module description

In this module the chemistry of the p-block is developed. In the first section the focus is principally on elemental trends, bonding effects and the chemistry of p-block compounds, in particular Groups 13, 14 and 15. The second section focuses on the use of simple band theory to understand the bonding and properties in p-block elements and semiconducting solids.
