Abstract: The secondary hydroxyl groups of erythritol and D-threitol undergo oxidation in a boiling methanolic solution of mercury (II) acetate to give DL- and D-glycerotetruloses. Similarly, acetoin is formed from erythro-2,3- and threo-2,3-butanediols under the mentioned reaction conditions. Differences in yields of particular α-hydroxycarbonyl compounds obtained show that the structures of the studied substances influence the rate of oxidation. The effect of subsequent dehydrating reactions to which DL- and D-glycerotetruloses respectively, are submitted upon overall course of reaction is discussed.
