About this Book
Since carbohydrate oligomers are still a challenge in synthetic chemistry, this book on recent developments fulfils a great need. Covering the chemistry necessary to synthesize exact copies of these structures, top authors from all around the world comprehensively deal with synthesis from anomeric halides, from miscellaneous glycosyl donors, and by indirect and special methods, as well as 1-oxygen-and 1-sulfur-substituted derivatives. They demonstrate the best approach for the stereoselective formation of the intermonomeric bond, making this essential reading for every biochemist working in biosynthesis, the exploration of biopathways and vaccines.
