Dear Fellow-netter: When I was going through a paper recently, I read of a compound arabinonate-6-phosphate. Is it a derivative of arabinose-6-phosphate? My guess is it as an oxidation product (acid) of arabinose-6-phospahte. If so, how to prepare it from arabinose-6-phosphate? Any chemist there, your help will be appreciated. Thanks. - J. K.
