A practical preparative method for 2-deoxy-scyllo-inosose, the earliest key intermediate leading to 2-deoxystreptamine, was devised as a prerequisite to more detailed biochemical studies on the biosynthesis of 2-deoxystreptamine. [2,2-2H2]-2-Deoxy-scyllo-inosose was also synthesized through a modified Ferrier reaction.
