A Regioselective Synthesis of E-Guggulsterone
AbstractWe have successfully prepared E-guggulsterone from 16,17-epoxy-pregnenolone in 84% yield over two steps via a hydrazine reduction and Oppenhauer oxidation. Additionally, isomerization was induced by heat, light (hn) and acid catalysis to convert E- guggulsterone into the corresponding Z isomer.
