Hello! I've been trying to figure out what the most stable structure of inositol is, but I keep running in to conflicting information. I'm not sure whether the most stable conformation is the myo-inositol form or the scyllo-inositol. All of the stereoisomers can be seen on wikipedia at this link under "Isomers and Structures" : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inositol . In that section in Wikipedia, it says that the myo-inositol form is the most stable. This does not make sense to me though. If you look at the chair conformations of the myo and scyllo forms of inositol, then that doesn't make sense: http://www.tcichemicals.com/en/us/support-download/tcimail/application/125-12.html . You can see that the myo-form has 5 equatorial and 1 axis, but the scyllo form has all equatorial hydroxyls. Since scyllo form has all equatorials, doesn't that make it the more stable structure?
