A new rapid synthesis of [82Br]‐2‐deoxy‐2‐bromo‐D‐mannose and [82Br]‐2‐deoxy‐2‐bromo‐D‐glucose is described. Reaction of 82Br2 with D‐glucal in CHCl3, followed by treatment with 1 N HCl gave [82Br]‐2‐deoxy‐2‐bromo‐D‐mannose and [82Br]‐2‐deoxy‐2‐bromo‐D‐glucose in the yield of 61.1 % and 27.7 %, respectively. The synthesis time was 20 min. The radiochemical purity of [82Br]‐2‐deoxy‐2‐bromo‐D‐mannose and [82Br]‐2‐deoxy‐2‐bromo‐D‐glucose was greater than 95 %. The radiochemical yield of [82Br]‐2‐deoxy‐2‐bromo‐D‐mannose and [82 Br]‐2‐deoxy‐2‐bromo‐D‐glucose was 14.3 % and 31.6 %, respectively. D‐Glucal was shown to be a useful precursor to allow rapid production of usable amounts of glucose analogs such as [75Br]‐2‐deoxy‐2‐bromo‐D‐mannose and [75Br]‐2‐deoxy‐2‐bromo‐D‐glucose.
