About this book


In Carbohydrate Biotechnology Protocols, Christopher Bucke has brought together a compilation of modern hands-on methods for the effective use of microbes and enzymes to produce and modify carbohydrates of potential and actual commercial value. These powerful methods enable both the expert and the beginner to generate polysaccharides, oligosaccharides, and carbohydrate-based surfactants by fermentation using enzymes. Additional techniques make it possible to produce derivatives of sugars, other oligosaccharides, and sugar derivatives using enzyme technology.
Carbohydrate Biotechnology Protocols offers synthetic chemists, biochemists, fermentation biotechnologists, and applied enzymologists cutting-edge techniques-many of them hitherto unavailable in print-that are cleaner and often less costly than available chemical alternatives. Timely and readily reproducible, these state-of-the-art protocols allow the user to produce and
