In connection with a theory as to the mechanism of alcoholic fermentation, certain of the unknown trioses were desired in order that their properties might be studied. These compounds which were of particular interest were: [...], [...], and [...].
Of these the last was selected as offering greatest possibilities.
By a rather long syntheses Wohl had prepared the acetal of the desired compound, but mentioned no attempt to hydrolyze the acetal. The object of this study was therefore two-fold, first to repeat the work of Wohl, and second to devise, if possible, a more direct method of preparing this unknown substance.
For convenience in the discussion it is purposed to name this compound glycidic aldehyde, by analogy to glycid [...] and glycidic acid [...].
