Short and sweet: (D)-glucose to (L)-glucose and (L)-glucuronic acid.

Abstract:
The scarcity and expense of access to L-sugars and other rare sugars have prevented the exploitation of their biological potential; for example D-psicose, only recently available, has been recognized as an important new food. Here we give the definitive and cheap synthesis of 99.4% pure L-glucose from D-glucose which requires purification of neither intermediates nor final product other than extraction into and removal of solvents; a simple crystallization will raise the purity to >99.8%.
