The Carbohydrates: Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physiology is a 15-chapter text that covers the significant developments in the biochemical and physiological aspects of the carbohydrates.
The first two chapters explore the structure, stereochemistry, occurrence, properties, and synthesis of monosaccharides. Considerable chapters are devoted to the chemical aspects of various classes of carbohydrates, including esters, glycosides, acetals, polyols, acidic carbohydrates, ethers, nitrogenous derivatives, oligosaccharides, polysaccharides, and glycosidases. The discussion then shifts to the qualitative and quantitative determination of carbohydrates, as well as their photosynthesis and metabolism. The final chapters focus on the important role of carbohydrates in nutrition and in dental aspects.
This work will be of value to chemists, biochemists, industrialists, biologists, histochemists, students, and medical and dental research workers.
