Abstract

Our previous study has shown that the oxidation of androst-4-ene-3β,9α,17β-triol 3,17-diacetate (1) with mercuric oxide — iodine results predominantly in α-epoxidation of the olefinic double bond to produce, as the only detectable reaction product, the 4α,5α-epoxy derivative (2) (in about 60% yield) (Scheme).
