DescriptionCarbohydrates are associated with a plethora of important biological processes and have been implicated in the onset and progress of many lethal diseases. They have attracted a great deal of recent research interest from both synthetic chemists and glycobiologists, and have been identified as novel targets of therapeutic importance. This book, which is aimed at synthetic and medicinal chemists, hopes to introduce both undergraduates and research students to the chemistry and biology of carbohydrates. The book investigates methods for synthesising carbohydrates in a systematic and logical manner and provides real examples from the literature to exemplify the procedures introduced. Both traditional and modern methods for synthesising carbohydrates, including enzymatic and solid- phase techniques, are discussed.
