Transformation of the aglycones in steroid glycosides. 1. Synthesis of 20β-acetoxy-16β,23-epoxy-21,24-dinor-5α-cholane-3β,17α-diol 3-0-[0-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 2)-0-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 4)-β-D-galactopyranoside]

The pathways of the chemical transformation of aglycones and their glycosides that do not affect the glycosidic chain are considered. Starting from 3β-hydroxy-5α-pregn-16-en-20-one 3-0-[0-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 2)-0-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 4)-β-D-galactopyranoside] the corresponding 16α(H),17α(OH)-dihydropyranone glycoside has been obtained. The latter has been converted into the polyacetate of a glycoside with a 17α,20β-dihydroxytetrahydropyran ring E. The structure and stereochemistry of the final compound have been shown from the results of the1H and13C NMR spectra and mass spectra.
