Glyconanomaterials, broadly defined as carbohydrate-presenting structures below 100 nm in size, exhibit remarkable chemical and physical properties with high potential for modern biomedical applications. In this chapter, current synthetic approaches for fabricating glyconanomaterials are summarized, with special emphasis on a novel photocoupling strategy to conjugate carbohydrates onto a wide variety of nanomaterials. Based on the photochemically induced reaction of perfluorophenylazide, different glyconanomaterials were efficiently synthesized, and the resulting structures used in a range of applications. The results demonstrate that this approach to carbohydrate presentation at nanomaterial surfaces leads to efficient and selective binding to cognate proteins, enabling new applications in carbohydrate-lectin recognition, profiling, biosensing, screening, cell imaging, and bacteria detection.
