Bibliographic information


From the reviews:

“In this book, the various concepts that allow a synthetic carbohydrate chemist to make such choices are reviewed. … the various authors describe how the nature of the anomeric leaving group and protecting groups combined with the method of activation allow the fine-tuning of a glycosylation reaction. … this book covers the most important discoveries made recently and should find its place on the bookshelf of any chemist engaged in synthetic carbohydrate chemistry.”­­­ (France-Isabelle Auzanneau, Journal of American Chemical Society, Vol. 133, November, 2011)
