The book describes carbohydrates conjugated with additional molecules - an area that could be called terra incognita, because it has been unexploited until now. An important part of the book constitutes analytical techniques, which are a challenge. Another important aspect is the practical application of those unique compounds: in biomedicine, bio-based technologies. The book contains 6 sections and 38 chapters which thoroughly discuss different aspects of glycoconjugates. The book would be useful for academic research, students, but also for industry, as the inspiration for development of innovative and bioactive products. -- Katarzyna Chojnacka, Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland
