Studies directed toward the total synthesis of novel azasteroids. III. The formation of a hexahydroisoquinoline, octahydroisoquinoline and a decahydro-2h-benzo[a]quinolizine as precursors to 8-azasteroids


  • Presented at the XIX International Congress of Pure and Applied Chemistry. London, July 10-17, 1963.


A plan of approach to novel 8-azasteroids was tested with suitable model compounds to determine its feasibility. The results of these experiments are described.
