Detailing commonly used methods and procedures, this reference discusses the reactions and derivative forms of carbohydrates. Preparative Carbohydrate Chemistry covers the formation, cleavage, and reactions of derivatives and illustrates bond-forming reactions of SN2 types, free radicals, chain extensions, and branching. The contents include: sugar derivatives; selected reactions in carbohydrate chemistry; chemical synthesis of oligosaccharides and O-and N -glycosyl compounds; enzymatic synthesis of sialic acid, KDO, and related deoxyulosonic acids, and of oligosaccharides; synthesis of -glycosyl compounds; carbocycles from carbohydrates; and total synthesis of sugars from non-sugars. This authoritative reference offers relevant chapters on reactions and derivative forms of carbohydrates, including commonly used methods as well as new experimental procedures. It also contains insightful chapter commentaries and succinct topic histories.


"…a compendium of procedures for the synthesis and utilization of carbohydrate-related molecules."

-Food Science and Technology (1998)

"…This book certainly belongs in every research library and on the bookshelf of every chemist."

-Journal of the American Chemical Society (1997)

"…this volume constitutes a chemist's passport to the field of glycobiology."

-Book Reviews/FBES Letters (1997)
