Methods in Carbohydrate Chemistry, Volume VIII: General Methods describes the principles and mode of operation of general methods for the analysis and structural characterization of carbohydrates.
This book is organized into two sections encompassing 50 chapters. The first section highlights the methods on automated chromatographic techniques; enzymic and other methods for structural analysis of polysaccharides. This section also explores the application of 13C NMR spectroscopy to carbohydrate chemistry. The second section describes the synthesis of deoxy and branched-chain sugars, 1,2-transglycosides, de-N- and de-O-sulfation, and de-N-acetylation of polysaccharides.
This book is an invaluable source for organic and analytical chemists, as well as for carbohydrate scientists and researchers.
