D-Arabinitol and xylitol were acetonated, benzylated and then hydrolyzed with a mineral acid to afford in good yields the corresponding 1-O-benzyl derivatives, which were identified by a periodate oxidation and a chemical identification. A preferential acetonation of the pentitols is discussed in a view of stereochemistry. Synthesis of 2-O-benzyl-D-arabinitol and 3-O-benzylxylitol are also described.
