Radical Reactions of Carbohydrates

Volume I: Structure and Reactivity of Carbohydrate Radicals

Volume II: Radical Reactions in Carbohydrate Synthesis

by Roger W. Binkley and Edith R. Binkley

"Radical Reactions of Carbohydrates" is a series of books that describe the involvement of radicals and radical reactions in carbohydrate chemistry. The first book in this series, "Volume I: Structure and Reactivity of Carbohydrate Radicals", is concerned with the basic structure of carbohydrate radicals and the reactivity that can be expected from these intermediates. "Volume II: Radical Reactions in Carbohydrate Synthesis" contains discussion and analysis of the radical reactions that have been used in carbohydrate synthesis.

All the material in these books is available at no charge from this website. Book chapters are in portable document files (pdf). Portable document files can be read using Adobe Reader, which can be downloaded at no cost. For information on downloading Adobe Reader click the button below.

Looking ahead to Volume III in this series finds a book that explores the use of radical reactions in the synthesis of biologically active carbohydrates. This book outlines the biological activity of the of the carbohydrates being synthesized and describes the role that radical reactions play in their synthesis.
