Carbohydrate Chemistry–8 presents the development in the studies of carbohydrate chemistry. This book provides information on the fundamentals aspects, methods, and structure of the chemistry of disaccharides. Organized into 11 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the chemistry of different disaccharides, including sucrose, maltoses, melibiose, lactose, and cellobiose. This text then explains the use of biosynthetic principles as an aid in structural studies of naturally occurring substances and of bacterial polysaccharides. Other chapters consider the homogeneous carbohydrate-binding glycoproteins, principally of plant origin but also occurring in in invertebrate forms. This book discusses as well the techniques for the selective degradation of polysaccharides and glycoproteins. The final chapter deals with the possibilities of carbohydrate research on various aspects, including the application of other organic reactions, the organization of polysaccharides, production of nucleosides and other antitumor agents, and glycoproteins and proteoglycans in cell walls. This book is a valuable resource for organic chemists.
