  1. OK...

    We have 1,2,3,4,5,6-hexahydroxycyclohexane. A cyclohexane ring, with one -OH group on each carbon. Molecular formula: [tex] C_6 H_{12} O_6 [/tex]
    (yes, a structural isomer of glucose!)

    The question: If all hydroxyls are in their equitorial positions, the name of the structure is 1,3,5/2,4,6 - hexahydroxycyclohexane (aka, scyllitol). Correct?

    I mean, is scyllitol the most stable stereoisomer of
    1,2,3,4,5,6-hexahydroxycyclohexane ?

    If you wish, the question is "visually represented" in the image attachment :wink:
