Research Interests
Bio-organic chemistry, carbohydrate chemistry, immunochemistry. Synthesis of mono- and oligosaccharides and their mimics, aminosugars, thiosugars, C-glycosylnitromethanes and other C-glycosyl, especially C-glycofuranosyl compounds, macrocyclic and long-chain monosaccharides, lipid A mimics. Carbohydrate-based recognition phenomena, affinity chromatography, chemisorption chromatography of sugars. New cellulose solvents, homogeneous and heterogeneous modification of polysaccharides. Transition metal-catalyzed isomerizations of sugars.
