neo-Inositol is one of the stereoisomers of inositol. It is one of the nine isomeric forms of cyclohexanehexol; a group of small and chemically very stable polar molecules that have versatile properties.[3] This stereoisomer is naturally occurring, but only in small amounts. It is also known as (1s,2R,3R,4s,5S,6S)-cyclohexane-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexol or 1,2,3/4,5,6-cyclohexanehexol in the IUPAC naming system.[4]
