EDITORIAL REVIEWS

Book Description

Concise yet complete, this is a succinct introduction to the topic, covering both basic chemistry as well as such advanced topics as high-throughput analytics and glycomics -- in one handy volume. This improved and expanded 3rd edition features all-new material on combinatorial synthesis of carbohydrates and carbohydrate biodiversity, and each chapter now contains study questions for self-learning and classroom teaching. Didactically written by an experienced lecturer and graduate student advisor, the text is backed by practical examples and more than 150 study questions tailored to students' needs.

From the Back Cover

Carbohydrates are important storage molecules, constituents of nucleic acids and biological recognition markers. Synthetic carbohydrates are important food additives, building blocks for polymers and have also been used as drugs.
