Abstract: The crystalline form of 1-deoxy-L-mannitol, C6H14O5, exists as an extensively hydrogen-bonded structure with each molecule acting as a donor and acceptor for five hydrogen bonds. There are no unusual crystal-packing features; the absolute configuration was determined from the use of 6-deoxy-L-mannose (L-rhamnose) as the starting material.
