Abstract
Chemical properties of ergosta-4,6,8(14),22-tetraen-3-one (1) were inv estigated. Though 1 is rather stable to acids or bases, it reacts easi ly with two molecules of oxygen on irradiation with UV light to give 6 alpha,9 alpha-epidioxy-14 alpha-hydroperoxyergosta-4,7,22-trien-3-one (2), which is transformed successively to 6 alpha,7 alpha;8 alpha,9 a lpha-diepoxy-14 alpha-hydroperoxyergosta-4,22-dien-3-one (3) and 14 al pha-hydroperoxy-9 alpha-hydroxyergosta-4,7,22-triene-3,6-dione (4) und er these reaction conditions.
