Monosaccharides are the basic carbohydrate building units that when joined together give rise to oligosaccharides or polysaccharides. Thus, the relationship of monosaccharides to oligosaccharides or polysaccharides is analogous to that of amino acids and proteins, or nucleotides and nucleic acids (polynucleotides).

Monosaccharides are produced by photosynthesis, the process by which plants, some bacteria and some protistans use the energy from sunlight to produce glucose from carbon dioxide and water.

The Monosaccharides Toolbox .pdf E-book includes valuable information about Monosaccharides including:

  1. Introduction to Monosaccharides
  2. Classification of Monosaccharides
  3. Generic Properties of Monosaccharides and Other Sugars
  4. Sources of Monosaccharides
  5. Key Monosaccharides and Their Modifications – A Review
  6. Analytical Aspects
  7. References, About the Authors & Acknowledgements
