Abstract

16-Dehydropregnenolone acetate (16-DPA) (1), an exocyclic α,β-conjugated ketone having a steroidal skeleton, when treated with mercuric(II) acetate in acetic acid furnished a single compound identified as (2). The structure of compound (2) has been elucidated on the basis of spectral data analysis (IR, NMR and MS).
Keywords: 16-DPA; mercuric(II) acetate; exocyclic α,β-conjugated ketone; steroidal skeleton 16-DPA; mercuric(II) acetate; exocyclic α,β-conjugated ketone; steroidal skeleton
