Reduction of penta-O-acetyl-myo-inosose-2 by catalytic hydrogenation and with sodium-amalgam was carried out in alcohol solution of pH $3{\sim}4$. The former reduction product was axial-alcohol, and the latter equatorial-alcohol. On reduction of penta-O-acetyl-DL-epi-inosose-2 with sodium borohydride and sodium-amalgam in the previous condition, ax.-alcohol and eq.-alcrhol have been obtained. The synthesis of various inositol-p-hydroxybezoate are described. The esters have been characterized by paper chromatography and saponification, and their antimicrobial activities on some microbes were tested for the application of food industry. As the result, it was found that the antimicrobiol activity of epi-inositol ester was superior to its analogues.
