This textbook is a comprehensive guide to analysis of carbohy-drates by gas-liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. In addition to explaining the facets of carbohydrate analysis and their relation to each other, the text also contains in-depth reference in-formation useful to practitioners in the field. Improvements in car-bohydrate analyses methodology during the past six years are also highlighted. This extensively illustrated text provides excellent data for those in carbohydrate, agriculture, and food chemistry.
