Abstract The preparation of some compounds in the 14-noreudesmane series is reported. The equilibrium between (+)-7β(H)-14-noreudesm-4-en-3,6-dione (XIII; R = H) and (+)-14-noreudesm-4-en-3,6-dione (XIV; R = H) is discussed. The synthesis of (+)-5β,7β(H)-14-noreudesm-4-one (XVI) whose absolute configuration is enantiomeric to that of d -valeranone (XVII) is described.
