It is over a century since Scherer discovered in Liebig’s meat extract a hexahydroxycyclohexane which he named inositol (1). Since that time a number of similar compounds have been shown to occur in nature, and a few others have been synthesized in the laboratory. Of the nine possible stereoisomeric forms of hexahydroxycychlohexane, myo-inositol is by far… CONTINUE READING
