A new convergent synthesis of the antitumor steroid formestane (4-OHA) 5 has been performed from the easily available epimeric mixture of 5 alpha- and 5 beta-androst-3-en-17-one 1a and 1b in order to attempt a yield improvement. A two-step oxidative route followed by base-catalyzed isomerization was applied to the 5 alpha- and 5 beta-epimers 1a and 1b,(More)
In the crystal structure of the title compound, C(21)H(32)O(2), ring A is highly distorted, with a conformation inter-mediate between 10β-sofa and 1α,10β-half chair; rings B and C have slightly flattened chair conformations. Ring D assumes an unusual 13β-envelope conformation, probably induced by the acet-oxy substituent. Cohesion of the crystal structure(More)
The title compound, alternatively called 24-nor-5 beta-chol-22-ene-3 beta,7 alpha,12 alpha-triyl triformate, C(26)H(38)O(6), has a cis junction between two of the six-membered rings. All three of the six-membered rings have chair conformations that are slightly flattened and the five-membered ring has a 13 beta,14 alpha-half-chair conformation. The 3 beta,(More)
The title compound, C(21)H(28)O(4), has a 4-acetoxy substituent positioned on the steroid alpha face. The six-membered ring A assumes a conformation intermediate between 1alpha,2beta-half chair and 1alpha-sofa. A long Csp(3)-Csp(3) bond is observed in ring B and reproduced in quantum-mechanical ab initio calculations of the isolated molecule using a(More)
Trimethylsilylcyanide addition to different carbonyl moieties, i.e. saturated ketones, an enone and an aldehyde, at the steroid side-chain, was studied in the presence of a convenient catalyst. Depending on the nature of the carbonyl group, different outcomes were noticed. Saturated 20-keto pregnanes yielded epimerically pure silylated cyanohydrins, being(More)
The title compound, C23H32O4, has a 3beta configuration, with the epoxy O atom at 16alpha,17alpha. Rings A and C have slightly distorted chair conformations. Because of the presence of the C5=C6 double bond, ring B assumes an 8beta,9alpha-half-chair conformation slightly distorted towards an 8beta-sofa. Ring D has a conformation close to a 14alpha-envelope.(More)
The title compound, C(19)H(29)NO, is a C17-oxime derivative of a potent aromatase inhibitor, which surprisingly has been found to have no inhibitory power. It crystallizes with two independent molecules in the asymmetric unit. C=N-O-H...N hydrogen bonds link pairs of molecules to form dimers almost parallel to the bc plane. Cohesion of the structure is also(More)
The title compound, C(21)H(32)O(3), results from modifications of the A and D rings of the aromatase substrate androstenedione. Ring A adopts a conformation between 10β-sofa and 1α,10β half-chair. Rings B and C are in slightly flattened chair conformations. Ring D approaches a 13β-envelope conformation, probably due to the acet-oxy substituent, and shows a(More)
The title hydrated tetrol, C(19)H(32)O(4)·3H(2)O, was synthesized by stereoselective reduction of the compound 3β,5α,6β-trihy-droxy-androstan-17-one. All rings are fused trans. The organic mol-ecules are connected head-to-tail along the c axis via O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds. Layers of water mol-ecules in the ab plane inter-connect these chains. A quantum chemical(More)
In the title compound, C(20)H(26)O(2), which is the 6-methyl-ene derivative of androstenedione and a synthetic percursor of exemestane, the steroid A ring approximates to a sofa (or envelope) conformation, with the methyl-ene group adjacent to the link to the B ring lying out of the plane of the other atoms. The B and C rings have slightly flattened chair(More)
