Lupane C-28 monoallylamides with α-ketoxime and α-hydroxyoxime groups in ring A were prepared from betulonic acid. Formation of A-secolupane C-3(28) mono- and diallylamides was used as an example to demonstrate that a one-step synthesis of 2,3-secotriterpene amides was possible by fragmentation of betulin and betulonic acid α-oximes by oxalylchloride or thionylchloride with subsequent amidation of the 2,3-secotriterpenoic acids formed in situ by allylamine. The proposed method enabled the yield of 2,3-secolupane C-3,C-28 diamides to be increased by five times compared with the previously described five-step method for preparing A-secotriterpene amides from betulonic acid.
