The first text to focus on the application of click chemistry to glycoscience, this book discusses the therapeutic and pharmacological aspects of carbohydrate click chemistry and includes chapters on the concepts background, as well as its industrial applications in areas such as drug discovery. The book reflects the novel methodologies and strategies of this concept. Each chapter describes new approaches, ideas, consequences, and applications deriving from the introduction of click processes. This provides an essential reference for a wide range of researchers and graduate-level students.
ZBIGNIEW J. WITCZAK, PhD, is Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences of the Nesbitt School of Pharmacy at Wilkes University. He has published over ninety research papers and holds six patents. His research focuses on carbohydrate synthons, including levoglucosenone and L-arabinose, as templates for carbohydrate-based therapeutics. In 2000, Dr. Witczak was awarded the Melville L. Wolfrom Award from the ACS Division of Carbohydrate Chemistry.
ROMAN BIELSKI, PhD, is Senior Scientist at Value Recovery, Inc., Partner in Cheminnolab, LLC, and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Wilkes University. His research investigates the origin of homochirality, modification of carbohydrates, solutions to environmental issues, and sustainability. As part of his achievements, Dr. Bielski co-developed a method of enantiomers' resolution, which might have been involved in prebiotic homochirality, since it would not require the use of chiral compounds.
