Carbohydrate Chemistry – VI (Madison 1972) covers the proceedings of the Sixth International Symposium on Carbohydrate Chemistry, held in Madison, USA on August 14-18, 1972.
Chapter 1 focuses on the study of complex formation of sugar-metal complexes using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Chapter 2 describes the three types of reaction in the synthesis of fluoro sugars, namely, nucleophilic displacements with fluoride salts, epoxide cleavage, and glycal addition. Chapter 3 discusses the influence of pure, applied, and analytical research studies on the changes in carbohydrate marketing and industrial sugar production. Chapter 4 examines the biosynthesis of chondroitin sulfate, which exemplifies the formation of connective tissue polysaccharides. This chapter also considers the properties and substrate specificities of enzymes used in the biosynthesis. Chapter 5 explores the developments in cellulose and related polysaccharides found in plant cell walls. This book will be of great benefit to carbohydrate chemists and researchers.
