Several monotosyl derivatives of inositols have been solvolysed in boiling acetic acid. In some cases the reaction occurs with predominant inversion and then presents a method suitable for the synthesis of rare cyclitols, e.g., allo- and muoo- inositols and their methyl ethers. In other cases, inversion and retention occur to a similar extent.
