Rodd's Chemistry of Carbon Compounds, Volume I: Aliphatic Compounds focuses on the chemistry of polyhydric alcohols and saccharides. The chemistry of polyhydric alcohols is a vast and crucially important area, not only because of the prominent roles that polyols have in their own right, but because of the way they and their modified forms are incorporated into natural products. The topics covered include the analogues, derivatives, and oxidation products of trihydric and tetrahydric alcohols; phospholipids; polyhydric alcohols and their oxidation products; synthesis, chemistry, structure and physical properties, and use in the synthesis as chiral templates and asymmetric synthesis of natural products of monosaccharides; and disaccharides and oligosaccharides. This text also discusses the applications of carbohydrates as chiral auxiliaries, templates, and starting materials in syntheses. This volume is a useful reference for students and organic chemists.
