The synthesis of very complex saccharide structures is one of the most challenging areas of modern glycoscience. This volume presents the state of the art of complex carbohydrate synthesis, written by leading scientists whose groups are making major contributions in the field. Reflecting the particular interest in inhibitors and modulators as well as in mimetics, an in-cepth treatment is given both of their selective syntheses and of their biological implications. In addition the concept of multivalent glycoconjugate recognition as well as supramolecular implications of amphiphilic carbohydrates are highlighted.
