Description

Adonitol (also known as Xylitol or Ribitol) is a crystalline pentose alcohol formed by the reduction of ribose. It occurs naturally in the plant Adonis vernalis as well as in the cell walls of some Gram-positive bacteria, in the form of ribitol phosphate, in teichoic acids. It also forms part of the chemical structure of riboflavin and flavin mononucleotide (FMN), which is a nucleotide coenzyme used by many enzymes, the so-called flavoproteins.

Applications

• Manufacture of microbiological test kits
• Research or further manufacturing use only, not for food or drug use.
