Inositol (CAS 87-89-8) is white crystalline powder,odorless,sweet taste. Slightly soluble in alcohol,
glacial acetic acid, ethylene glycol and glycerin, insoluble in ethyl ether, acetone and chloroform. Stability in the air, are stable to heat, acid and alkali, but easy to moisture absorption.
Inositol is synthesized from glucose-6-phosphate (G-6-P) in two steps. First, G-6-P is isomerised by an inositol-3-phosphate synthase enzyme (called ISYNA1) to myo-inositol 1-phosphate, which is then dephosphorylated by an inositol monophosphatase enzyme (called IMPase 1) to give free myo-inositol. In humans, most inositol is synthesized in the kidneys, in typical amounts of a few grams per day.
