Abstract

During the past decade, research work on the structural elucidation of sugar-containing antibiotics significantly contributed to the development of certain areas of carbohydrate chemistry. The structural and synthetic studies on various rare monosaccharide derivatives (deoxy and aminodeoxy sugars and their branched-chain analogs) isolated from metabolic substances and antibiotics produced by numerous microorganisms necessitated the elaboration of new and more sophisticated investigation techniques. New methods of isolation and structural determination were accompanied by the introduction of new and ingenious synthetic strategies and methodology.
