Known to most as an important food type, carbohydrates are critically involved in nutrition and metabolism. They also have profoundly important roles in the exciting new area of nutraceuticals, and in materials science. Carbohydrates possess greater potential diversity than proteins and this enormous variety of structure and activity has led to their use in fields as diverse as cancer therapy and toothpaste manufacture. Carbohydrates are already a multimillion dollar business, but their importance in research

From 27 July to 1 August 2008, the University of Oslo, Norway, was the host of the 24th International Carbohydrate Symposium (ICS 2008). The conference consisted of the two Whistler award lectures, nine plenary lectures, 20 invited lectures, 115 oral contributions, and 400 poster presentations. There were 605 attendees from 40 countries at the conference, including an impressive group of 140 Japanese scientists. Other countries represented were Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, P.R. China

95. CARBONIZATION OF CARBOHYDRATES
In a crucible place sufficient glucose or sucrose to cover the bottom well.
Add 1 ml. cone. H2S04, observe at room temperature for a few minutes,
then warm cautiously for a few minutes.
Discuss the reactions taking place and comment upon the appropriate-
ness of the term "carbohydrate."
96. MouscH's TEST FOR CARBOHYDRATES
Dilute 1 ml. of each of the following 20% sugar solutions: sucrose,
maltose, lactose, glucose, fructose, to 5 ml. with water, add 10 drops

Introduction Cyclopropyl carbohydrates marry the high reactivity of cyclopropanes [1–9] with the rich functionality and unambiguous stereochemistry of carbohydrate chiral pool reagents [10–13]. A range of product structures are preparable through ring opening reactions of the cyclopropanes (vide infra). Products derived from reactions of cyclopropyl carbohydrates represent glycosyl mimetics [14–20], with potential as therapeutics [21–23]. Therefore the pursuit of new target structures in this way has gained much recent attention [24–27]. The ready availability of
