Racemic 4-O-methanesulfonyl-myo-inositol 1,3,5-orthoformate was prepared by methanolysis of racemic 2,4-di-O-benzoyl-4-O-methanesulfonyl-myo-inositol 1,3,5-orthoformate, in the presence of triethylamine. The diol crystallizes in space group P212121 with cell dimensions a = 6.094(1), b = 6.502(2), c = 25.947(3) Å, V = 1028.1(4) Å, Z = 4. The molecular crystals show both intra- and intermolecular O—H···O short contacts. The methine and the methyl hydrogens are involved in several C—H···O interactions.
