Heretofore, radiochemical yields of sugars position-labeled with carbon-14 have been only 5 to 10 percent. This paper reports an improved cyanohydrin synthesis, and the preparation of D-glucose-1-C and D-mannose-1-C from D-arabinose in yields of about 50 percent. Low yields in prior syntheses appear to have been due to several inefficient steps, and to the(More)
