Concise yet complete, this is a succinct introduction to the topic, covering both basic chemistry as well as such advanced topics as high-throughput analytics and glycomics -- in one handy volume. This improved and expanded 3rd edition features all-new material on combinatorial synthesis of carbohydrates and carbohydrate biodiversity, and each chapter now contains study questions for self-learning and classroom teaching. Didactically written by an experienced lecturer and graduate student advisor, the text is backed by practical examples and more than 150 study questions tailored to students' needs.
"...certainly merits a place on the shelves of carbohydrate chemistry students and will surely prove to be a useful laboratory resource for many."
