All of the possible conduritol isomers have already been synthesized starting from completely different materials and their biological importance studied. Conduritols are useful precursors in the preparation of cyclitols such as myo-inositols phosphates, and pseudo-sugars, some of which are important mediators in many cellular processes. The synthesis of conduritpls, quercitols and the development of new synthetic methods are discussed in this paper.
