D-mannose acts as an alternative energy source utilized by brain. It is used in the study of assessing the synthesis of amphiphilic glycopolymers and investigating early detection of bronchiolitis obliterans.It may be useful in the treatment of urinary tract infections (UTIs) and carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome type 1b. It is also useful in the formation of glycan structure and glycosylation.
Chiral building block. For use in a 15-step synthesis of the macrocycle (+)-aspicilin, in which 3 of the 4 asymmetric centers come from mannose, see: Helv. Chim. Acta, 72, 1753 (1989).
