processes. Recent Trends in Carbohydrate Chemistry: Synthesis, Structure, and Function of Carbohydrates covers green and sustainable reactions, organometallic carbohydrate chemistry, synthesis of glycomimetics, multicomponent reactions, and chemical transformations leading to molecular diversity based on carbohydrates. These include inhibitors of glycogen phosphorylase, which are relevant in controlling type 2 diabetes and sugar sulfates. Polysaccharides, which are commonly modified chemically, are also examined with contributions covering polysaccharide synthesis and modification of polysaccharides to obtain new structures and properties. Recent Trends in Carbohydrate Chemistry: Synthesis, Structure, and Function of Carbohydrates is ideal for researchers working as synthetic organic chemists, and for those interested in biomolecular chemistry, green chemistry, organometallic chemistry, and material chemistry in academia as well as in industry
