A novel, versatile D-BCD steroid construction strategy, illustrated by the total syntheses of estrone and desogestrel

Proposed are the total syntheses of the steroids desogestrel and estrone, utilizing a 1,4 addition/alkylation process to install the correct stereochemistry at C8, C13 and C14 in a single-pot
