Welcome to the Glycochemistry Group in Poitiers
Carbohydrates are the most complex biopolymers on earth and hold great potential in many areas ranging from medicine to materials.
Our group explores their chemical modifications to access original structures that can find applications as :
- probes to decipher the mechanism of enzymatic or chemical reactions dealing with carbohydrates.
- inhibitors of glycoprocessing enzymes.
- chelating species.
