Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

Our synthesis of the regulatory oxysterol 24(S),25-epoxycholesterol (1) from stigmasterol has been improved by the discovery that cuprate 2 can be coupled with allylic acetate 3 to give in 73% yield in the key step of the most effecient conversion yet of a C22 intermediate to desmosteryl acetate (4). Efforts to prep. diol 5 from sulfone 6 via Payne rearrangement of epoxide 7 will also be presented. [on SciFinder(R)]
