Abstract

Compared with the corresponding reactions of 3-oxo-Δ4- steroids, hydrogenation and alkaline epoxidation of 4-methylcholestenone and 4-methyltestosterone give higher proportions of 5α-products. α-Epoxides were obtained from reactions of cholestenone and 4-methylcholestenone with peroxylauric acid.
