  • Click Chemistry in Glycoscience

    Profs. Witczak and Bielski publish a book detailing some of the unique "click" transformations in carbohydrate chemistry. The publisher is Wiley.

Lays the foundation for new methods and applications of carbohydrate click chemistry Introduced by K. Barry Sharpless of The Scripps Research Institute in 2001, click chemistry mimics nature, giving researchers the tools needed to generate new substances quickly and reliably by joining small units together. With contributions from more than thirty pioneering researchers in the field, this text explores the many promising applications of click chemistry in glycoscience. Readers will learn both the basic concepts of carbohydrate click chemistry as well as its many biomedical applications, including synthetic antigens, analogs of cell-surface receptors, immobilized enzymes, targeted drug delivery systems, and multivalent cancer vaccines. Click Chemistry in Glycoscience examines a broad range of methodologies and strategies that have emerged from this rapidly evolving field. Each chapter describes new approaches, ideas, consequences, and applications resulting from the introduction of click processes. Divided into four sections, the book covers: Click chemistry strategies and decoupling & Thio-click chemistry of carbohydrates. Link
  • Carbohydrate Nomenclature

    This report was compiled and submitted by our Divisional Member Derek Horton. Excellent work Derek!

An update on the detailed report presented at the Dallas ACS meeting in March 2014 to the ACS Committee on Nomenclature, Terminology, and Symbols, and to the ACS Division of Carbohydrate Chemistry can be found here.  It concerns primarily the discussions and actions taken at the meeting in Utrecht, The Netherlands, of the IUPAC-IUBMB Joint Commission on Biochemical Nomenclature (JCBN) during May 12—14, 2014.

ACS Symposium Series

The ACS Symposium Series are the high-quality, peer-reviewed eBooks developed from ACS technical divisions’ symposia. Each chapter is contributed by an expert in the relevant research area and each symposium series is edited by internationally recognised experts in the field.

The CARB Division has sponsored over 43 books in the ACS Symposium Series. You can see the full list here.
