Methods in Carbohydrate Chemistry, Volume VII: General Methods, Glycosaminoglycans, and Glycoproteins is a compilation of useful methods from the entire field of carbohydrate chemistry. This volume puts emphasis on methods and procedures used with glycoproteins and glycosaminoglycans. The book contains chapters devoted to the presentation of methods and procedures used with mono- and disaccharides, glycosides and nucleosides, and amino sugars. The methods for the isolation, purification, and analysis of glycoproteins and glycosaminoglycans are elaborated in detail as well. This volume is intended for the use of chemists, biochemists, and researchers in the field of carbohydrate chemistry.
