Technical Abstract: Complex sugars, such as the residual products from the fermentation of biomass for fuel ethanol, typically require specialized carbohydrate analysis. Techniques to optimize the monosaccharide composition, and the linkage analysis (degree of branching) between the sugar units of complex carbohydrates will be described, with particular focus on mass spectrometry. A new "green chemistry" approach to novel locked-ring C-glycoside sugars from biomass will also be described, and their potential use for the sugar analysis and immobilization of complex carbohydrates will be discussed.
