NMR of carbohydrates

The aim of this report is to collect the most important results in sugar studies by NMR methods in the last two years. This review covers determination of new and previously known structures of sugars isolated from natural sources, as well as the structures of carbohydrates obtained by chemical or enzymatic synthesis. Moreover, we have included herein the papers describing non‐covalent interactions between carbohydrates and other sugars, peptides, proteins and DNA fragments, as well as the application of NMR techniques to identification and quantification of sugars. The development in rare and unusual NMR methods used to study the sugar structures is also included. The last section focuses on the computational methods used to calculate NMR parameters, and on the carbohydrate databases.
