Abstract: The crystalline form of 1-deoxy-D-sorbose, C6H12O5, is shown to be 1-deoxy-[alpha]-D-sorbopyranose. This is the first reported crystal structure of a 1-deoxyketose. The absolute configuration was determined by the use of D-xylose as the starting material. The crystal structure has a three-dimensional hydrogen-bonded network.
