and pharmacological aspects of carbohydrate chemistry. In addition to the advancement in construction of oligosaccharides, chemists are also making strides in the ability to assemble glycopeptides and glycoproteins. This book covers advanced aspects of carbohydrates, starting with a brief introduction, nomenclature and classification that is followed by a discussion of glyosidic bond formation methodology, recent protocols for the synthesis of O-glycosides, N-glycosides, thioglycosides and C-glycosides, Intramolecular Aglycon Delivery (IAD), carbohydrate modification, and more. Written by a team of international experts actively working on different aspect of synthetic carbohydrate chemistry, this book is an invaluable resource for carbohydrate chemists, natural products chemists, medicinal chemists, synthetic organic chemists and biochemists working in industry and academia.
