2C-Methyl-D-arabinono-1,4-lactone monohydrate

Abstract:
The synthesis of C6H10O5.H2O, by the hydrolysis of a δ-lactone was studied. The synthesis was shown inequivocally to be a γ-lactone. The protected 1-deoxy-D-rilbulose, was treated with sodium cyanide and produced a single diastereomeric product, the structure of which was established by x-ray crystallography. During the isolation, some loss of the protecting acetonide group afforded an unprotected lactone, which was eventually crystallized. The results show that the diol has a trans configuration.
