Abstract:

A substance formed in low yield by chlorination of cholesterol in aqueous solutions has been identified as 5-alpha, 6-beta-dichloro-3-beta, 4-beta-epoxy-cholestane. In order to check a possible route for its formation, the chlorination product of cholest-4-en-3-beta, 6-beta-diol was examined. It was found to consist mainly of 4-alpha-chloro-5-beta, 6-beta epoxy-cholestan-3-beta-01. Author
