    Abstract

    As an important but underappreciated field, carbohydrate chemistry is a critical topic for undergraduate students to learn. With applications to nutrition, food science, and diabetes, carbohydrates provide real-world relevance to students. This review summarizes the literature of undergraduate laboratory experiments which use carbohydrates since the year 2000. Experiments explore important chemical concepts such as synthesis, kinetics, analysis, and computational chemistry. Experiments designed for general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, and analytical chemistry at a variety of skill levels are presented.
