Chemistry - Inorganic chemistry handbook with reaction lists

Solution 1:

An Intro in Russian edition of Reactivity of Inorganic Substances by Lidin et al. claims its uniqueness:

Настоящее пособие носит информационно-справочный характер, не имеет аналогов в отечественной и зарубежной химической литературе, охватывает все разделы неорганической химии, изучаемые в химических вузах.

(English) This reference handbook has no analogues among domestic and foreign chemical literature, covers all inorganic chemistry sections studied in university chemistry course.

However, Turova's Inorganic Chemistry in Tables comes pretty close. It doesn't only list reactions per element groups, but also arranges them in visual blocks; available both in Russian and English [1, 2]:



  1. Турова, Н. Я. Неорганическая Химия в Таблицах; Высший химический колледж РАН: Москва, 1997.
  2. Turova, N. Inorganic Chemistry in Tables; Springer: Heidelberg ; New York, 2011. ISBN 978-3-642-20486-9.

Solution 2:

I am not aware of a list like this however, the biggest database on Earth of inorganic materials/reactions is the Gmelin Handbuch der Anorganische Chemie. Obviously in German since late 1770s and specific to element by element. The later editions started in English since 1970s. It is descriptive unlike the reference you have mentioned. Reaxys (Elsevier) has taken over Gmelin Handbuch and its organic counter part Beilstein. All in English.
