  • DEHYDRATION of alcohols of the lanosterol series to the corresponding hydrocarbons has recently been reported by us1, when the action of both phosphorus pentachloride and phosphorus oxychloride was described. Dihydroagnosterol and dihydrolanosterol, when treated with phosphorus pentachloride, gave iso-agnostadiene (‘iso-γ-lanostatriene’), C30H48, and iso-lanostadiene, C30H50, respectively, and hydrocarbons isomeric with the above dehydration products were obtained with phosphorus oxychloride… CONTINUE READING
