Book Description

Volumes in the Proven Synthetic Methods Series address the concerns many chemists have regarding irreproducibility of synthetic protocols, lack of identification and characterization data for new compounds, and inflated yields reported in chemical communications—trends that have recently become a serious problem.

Featuring contributions from world-renowned experts and overseen by a highly respected series editor, Carbohydrate Chemistry: Proven Synthetic Methods, Volume 4 compiles reliable synthetic methods and protocols for the preparation of intermediates for carbohydrate synthesis or other uses in the glycosciences.

Exploring carbohydrate chemistry from both the academic and industrial points of view, this unique resource brings together useful information into one convenient reference. The series is unique among other synthetic literature in the carbohydrate field in that, to ensure reproducibility, an independent checker has verified the experimental parts involved by repeating the protocols or using the methods.

The book includes new or more detailed versions of previously published protocols as well as those published in not readily available journals. The essential characteristics of the protocols presented are reliability, updated characterization data for newly synthesized substances and the expectation of wide utility in the carbohydrate field. The protocols presented will be of wide use to a broad range of readers in the carbohydrate field and the life sciences, including undergraduates taking carbohydrate workshops.

Christian Vogel earned a PhD in organic chemistry–heterocyclic chemistry under the supervision of Professor Klaus Peseke at the University of Rostock in 1980. Since 1992, he has served as a professor in the Department of Organic Chemistry, University of Rostock.
In addition to fucose chemistry, Dr. Vogel’s main interests are pectin fragment synthesis using the modular design principle, the synthesis of rare sugars for structural investigations, and C-nucleosides.

 Paul V. Murphy was appointed to the position of Established Professor of Chemistry at National University of Ireland Galway (NUI Galway) in 2008. He is from the West of Ireland (Turloughmore, Co. Galway).
His group is engaged in the design and synthesis of bioactive compounds, with a focus on carbohydrates, maintaining a long tradition in carbohydrate research in Galway’s School of Chemistry.
