Mass Spectrometry: Techniques for the Structural Characterization of Glycans presents new methods for conducting detailed carbohydrate qualitative analysis—arming analytical chemists, pharmaceutical scientists, and food scientists with a quick reference that will allow them to determine the structures of carbohydrates molecules.

As there is a need in the scientific community for content specific to structural determination and analysis of new glycoprotein drug, and because structure-activity analysis requires a structural determination of the N- and O-linked oligosaccharides linked to glycol-proteins, this book provides the relevant research that are necessary for advances and new outcomes in this area of study.

Key Features

  • Authored by an analytical chemist with more than 30 years of experience in research and industry
  • Serves as a quick reference in mass spectral analysis and carbohydrates
  • Includes more than 60 figures to aid in the retention of key concepts


Analytical chemists, pharmaceutical scientists, and food scientists conducting research in mass spectral analysis.
