This monograph is aimed at providing researchers new to the subject with information on the structure and mechanisms in the chemistry, biochemistry or processing of carbohydrates. The book contains everything the reader needs to know about a non-synthetic carbohydrate research project. It gives excellent coverage of carbohydrate chemistry and biochemistry, particularly including the principles of reactivity in the process industries, such as pulp, paper and food. It also employs use of the same concepts to describe enzymic and non-enzymic reactivity.


"the overall view of the text is favorable, since it covers so many varied topics, some perhaps unfamiliar to even the most seasoned glycoscientists"

" invaluable companion and introduction to the primary literature of the field."
