«  » »Description:This book is on carbohydrates-the essential molecules that give you energy. They are the building blocks of life. This book delivers up-to-date coverage on all aspects of carbohydrate chemistry. The molecules are sometimes sugars, i.e. «  »sweet, » » hence the subtitle «  »The Sweet Molecules of Life. » » Carbohydrates first gives the «  »nuts and bolts » » of carbohydrate chemistry, enabling the reader to appreciate the subsequent chapters on protecting groups and the reactions of monosaccharides. (The protecting groups do just that-they are put on the molecules as a temporary measure during one or more reactions to stop the wrong bit of the molecule being changed during that reaction.) * Introduces the basic chemistry of carbohydrates * Describes the concepts, protecting groups, and reactions of carbohydrates * Includes all aspects of the synthesis of the glycosidic linkage * Gives an introduction to glycobiology and vaccines * Includes references to carbohydrate literature » » »
