This book takes a fresh approach to the study of carbohydrate chemistry, providing a broad and detailed overview. Providing a thorough survey of both mono- and polysaccharide chemistry, the contributors stress applications rather than purely theoretical considerations, and cover three main
areas of study: chemical identification and chemical properties of carbohydrates, synthesis of carbohydrates, and biotechnological applications.
