We developed a synthetic method for 5-thio-l-hexopyranose from d-glyconothio-O-lactone using the initial ring-opening reaction and subsequent recyclization under Mitsunobu conditions. Using this method, only a three-step transformation is required from d-glyconothio-O-lactone to 5-thio-l-glyconolactone.
