Handbook of Polysaccharides


Chris Lawson



The «HandBook for Polysaccharides » covers the toolbox and catalogue of polysaccharides and related biopolymers.
The structural diversity and the diverse attributes of these abundant (macro) molecules underline a wide range of uses that exploit their unique functionalities across the food, pharmaceutical and industrial sectors. The presentation of this toolbox and catalogue provides comprehensive support for research, development and application requirement. Complemented by a description of the necessary analytical procedure for structural determination, the guide provides a comprehensive description of the complexities of the carbohydrates in some detail including sources, properties, applications and the relationship between their primary, secondary & tertiary structures and functionality.
