The elucidation of the structure of the 16 isomeric linear aldohexoses is approached block by block in a clear, logical, concise, and coherent manner. The main premise, or paradigm, of this paper is Bijvoet’s structure elucidation of (+)-tartaric acid. The other premise is a preparatory method developed by Baer and Fischer, the instructive potential of which is revealed for the first time in this paper. It is about elucidating the configuration of C-2 using di-O-isopropylidenic hexitol derivatives. Furthermore, the entire set of experimental methods developed and used by E. Fischer in the structure elucidation of monosaccharides is available in this chapter.
