With the increase in volume, velocity and variety of information, researchers can find it difficult to keep up to date with the literature in their field. This invaluable volume contains analysed, evaluated and distilled information on the latest in carbohydrate research. The discovery and synthesis of novel carbohydrates and mimetics with diverse applications continues to be a major challenge for carbohydrate chemists. The understanding of the structure and function of carbohydrates and glycoconjugates remains vital in medicine and molecular biology.
This volume collates modern carbohydrate research from theory to application and demonstrates the importance of carbohydrates in new lead generation. It is of benefit to any researcher who wishes to learn about the latest developments in the carbohydrate field.
