The best way to attach Glucose to primary amine is reductive
amination. There are literally thousands of references. Some common
books which are usually found in every library are:
Methods in Enzymology, Vol. 242 and 247
Neoglycoproteins (Eds. Y.C. Lee and R.T. Lee), Academic Press, 1994.
Advances in Carbohydrate Chemistry and Biochemistry, Vol 37 (1980)
Chapter by Lee et al., page 225-281
Any undergraduate organic chemistry book will have a section on
Perkin Elmer, Applied Biosystems Division

I would like to cross-link glucose molecules to carboxyl or primary amino
