Acid catalysed backbone rearrangement of cholesta-2,4,6-triene: On the origin of ring A and ring B aromatic steroids in recent sediments

|Abstract||Rearrangement of cholesta-2,4,6-triene in the presence of p-toluenesulfonic acid in acetic acid at 70° C leads to 4-methyl-19-nor-cholesta-1,3,5(10)-triene and 1(10 !6)-abeo-14b-cholesta-5,7,9(10)-triene in less than 2 h. Postulated mechanisms of formation of these products are supported by molecular mechanics calculations of the relative stabilities of reaction intermediates. The results suggest that D5,7-sterols, the most common natural precursors of triunsaturated steroidal hydrocarbons in contemporary sediments, constitute another major source for monoaromatic A and B steroids in addition to D5-sterols.|
