Rodd’s Chemistry of Carbon Compounds Volume 1F: Aliphatic Compounds Penta- and Higher Polyhydric Alcohols focuses on acyclic compounds derivatives, monosaccharide, and related components. It discusses oligosaccharides and polysaccharides and related compounds.
Some of the topics covered in the book are the nomenclature, stereochemistry, and structural representation of alcohols; preparations, chromatographic separation, and synthesis of alditols; conformational analysis of monosaccharide; functional derivatives of monosaccharide; and natural sources and properties of glycosides. The reactions and derivatives of alditols are also covered. Isotopically labeled carbohydrates; trisaccharides; and glycoproteins of animal origin and complex polysaccharides are discussed. The molecular structure of nitrogen-containing trisaccharides and tetrasaccharides is also presented. The book can provide useful information to chemists, students, and researchers.
