From the Back Cover:

‘Carbohydrates: The Essential Molecules of Life’ gives a broad, modern treatment of the structure, properties and reactions of monosaccharides. This knowledge is then used in the chemical synthesis of the glycosidic linkage. Enzymes can also break and create this linkage, resulting in many of the essential molecules of life: polysaccharides, glycoproteins and proteoglycans.

About the Author:

Robert Stick is a Queenslander by birth and completed his undergraduate and higher degrees at the University of Queensland. Following post-doctoral studies with Ray Lemieux and Sir Derek Barton, he took a faculty position at The University of Western Australia in 1975 and has since spent sabbatical leaves with Bert Fraser-Reid (Duke University), and with Bill Cullen and Steve Withers (both of the University of British Columbia).
