Carbohydrates: The Essential Molecules of Life. Edition No. 2

  • ID: 1757924
  • Book
  • October 2008
  • Elsevier Science and Technology

This book provides the "nuts and bolts" background for a successful study of carbohydrates - the essential molecules that not only give you energy, but are an integral part of many biological processes.

A question often asked is 'Why do carbohydrate chemistry?' The answer is simple: It is fundamental to a study of biology. Carbohydrates are the building blocks of life and enable biological processes to take place.
Therefore the book will provide a taste for the subject of glycobiology.

Covering the basics of carbohydrates and then the chemistry and reactions of carbohydrates this book will enable a chemist to gain essential knowledge that will enable them to move smoothly into the worlds of biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology.
