Radiation Chemistry of Carbohydrates is a five-chapter book that deals with the detailed analysis of experimental data on the radiation chemistry of carbohydrates. After introducing the focus of the study, this book discusses the radiation chemistry of water and aqueous solutions. This discussion is followed by a topic on the general approaches and methods of investigation of the radiolysis of carbohydrates. This text also looks into the radiolysis of various classes of carbohydrates and into the major transformations of carbohydrates induced by irradiation. This book will be helpful for students and experts in the field of chemistry and related disciplines.
