_________________________________________________________________
This book presents in one volume a sequence of chapters leading 
from classical methods through today's newest state-of-the-art 
technology for oligosaccharide synthesis.  It places particular 
emphasis on the most recent breakthroughs in the field, including 
emerging technologies for both oligosaccharide and glycoconjugate 
synthesis.  Chapters describing the synthesis of the increasingly 
important glycosidic linkage analogs, as well as of 
oligosaccharides containing derivatives and analogs of natural 
sugars are included.  Enzymatic synthesis, also covering combined 
chemical and enzymatic synthesis, is also included.  Chapters are 
written by the leading experts in the field.  Wherever possible, 
methods of synthesis are provided in sufficient detail to allow 
the reader to implement the techniques described.  More than 1700 
references are provided in the 21 chapters comprising the book.  
This volume should provide a wealth of information to a large 
number of synthetic organic chemists, medicinal chemists, protein 
chemists, biochemists, glycobiologists and cell biologists, 
including students in these fields.
