13C Nuclear Magnetic Relaxation of Carbohydrate Molecules in Solution
Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is a very powerful tool for analyzing the conformation and molecular architecture of carbohydrate molecules. Both ID and 2D methodologies have provided valuable information about small and large molecules, ranging from the anomeric configuration of a monosaccharide to the more complex problem of the sequence of monosaccharide residues that constitute an oligo-, or polysaccharides.
