By chromatography on Polikhrom-1, silica gel, and Florisil, an ethanolic extract of the digestive organs of the starfishPatiria pectinifera has yielded the steroid polyols 5α-cholestan-3β,6α,8,15α,16β,26-hexaol and 5α-cholestan-3β,4β,6α,7α,8,15β,16β,26-octaol 6α-(sodium sulfate). The structures of the compounds have been shown by spectral characteristics and chemical transformations.
