Alicyclic molecular frameworks are useful for the study of electronic through-bond (TB) and through space (TS) interactions of functional groups over fixed distances and/or a specified number of C-C bonds. Steroids, being readily available, stable and stereochemically well-defined, are especially suited for such investigations. Indeed, their use in the study of the stereochemical aspects and the long-range effects of groups situated at specified distances from chemically reactive centers has… Expand

Long-range interactions of substituents in steroidal molecules
The dependence of the long-range electronic interactions of carbonyl groups in alicyclic steroidal ring systems on (i) the basic ring structure (i.e., sterane vs. perhydrochrysene) and (ii) theExpand
Electronic structure and biological activity of steroids.
This is an attempt to rationalize the biological activity of steroids (represented through steroid-receptor binding) by making direct correlation between spectroscopic and biological data. Expand
Symmetry adapted cluster–configuration interaction calculation of the photoelectron spectra of famous biological active steroids
Abstract The photoelectron spectra of some famous steroids, important in biology, were calculated in the gas phase. The selected steroids were 5α-androstane-3,11,17-trione,Expand
Ab initio comparative study of the electronic structure of testosterone, epitestosterone and androstenedione
Abstract The geometries and electronic structure of testosterone (T), epitestosterone (E) and androstenedione (A) were assessed at high ab initio level, using the 6-31 G∗ basis set. These androgensExpand
Semiempirical assessment of changes on the electronic structure of androstene with the addition of carbonyl and hydroxyl groups
Abstract A systematic study on the impact of carbonyl and hydroxyl functional groups on the electronic structure of the steroid, androst-4-ene (androstene) was carried out by the semiempiricalExpand
On the n(N)/n(O) interaction in adamantane cages
Abstract The equilibrium structures of adamantane, 1-azaadamantane, adamantanone and derivatives were fully optimized at the B3LYP/6-31+G ∗∗ ab initio level of theory. The NMR 13 C chemical shiftsExpand
Electronic structure of vitamins D2 and D3.
Although biochemical behaviour and function of the title compounds has long been known to follow the pattern of steroid hormones, it is demonstrated in this work that the electronic structures also closely resemble such hormones. Expand
Gas phase ionization energies of some important unsaturated steroids
Gas phase ionization energies of some important biological active unsaturated steroids, known as active molecules in biology, were calculated using an expensive ab initio method for the first time.Expand
Austin Model 1 study of the effect of carbonyl and hydroxyl functional groups on the electronic structure of androstane
Abstract Androgens are steroid hormones with a wide variety of biological actions. Biochemically, testosterone the main hormone is reduced at C5 yielding 5α and 5β-reduced androgens. Frequently,Expand
