In recent decades, there has been an explosive growth in knowledge on the important biological roles of carbohydrates, especailly as specific information carriers. Neoglycoconjugates have been indispensable tools in these studies. This timely book, with both synthetic and application studies, will be of great value to researchers in a number of disciplines.

Key Features

  • Includes applications of neoglycoconjugates in medicine (vaccine preparation, drug targeting and tumor diagnosis)
  • Is a comprehensive survey of synthetic strategies
  • Covers application of neoglycoconjugates in basic research
