This book presents the state of the art in the synthesis very complex saccharide structures, written by leading scientist at the forefront of this rapidly growing field. Reflecting the particular significance in recent years of efficient and selective procedures employing enzymes for preparative purposes in the carbohydrate field, a major proportion of the articles focus on these biocatalytic methods. In addition, recent strategies for the construction of unusual carbohydrates structures employing novel and creative methodologies are highlighted. Further, particular emphasis is placed on very complex saccharide structures as well as on special solutions to problems that are particularly challenging.
