To obtain the various kinds of inositol stereomers, we have selected the process of electrolytic reduction of DL-epi-inosose-2 using Ni, Ta, Cu, Mo, Pb, Sn, W, Cd and Hg etc., as cathode. We think that this process gives greater variety than chemical processes. DL-epi-inosose-2 was synthesized by chemical oxidation of myo-inositol, dissolved in aqueous solution of potassium hydroxide, and used as electrolytic solution. To prevent anodic oxidation of cathode products the H-type diaphragm cell was used. As the results of paper chromatography of cathodic products, we obtained the Rf values of myo-inositol and epi-inositol were in good agreement with literature values.
