Rodd’s Chemistry of Carbon Compounds, Second Edition, Volume I: Aliphatic Compounds, Part F: Penta- and Higher Polyhydric Alcohols, their Oxidation Products and Derivatives presents the systematic description of acyclic compounds, which are of great chemical, biological, and technical interest.
This three-chapter volume specifically covers the extract structures and conformations of various members of higher polyhydric alcohols. The three chapters deal, respectively, with penta-, hexa- and higher polyhydric alcohols and their derivatives; monosaccharides and related compounds; and oligosaccharides and polysaccharides and related compounds. This book is of great value to organic chemists and researchers.
