Abstract: Flash vacuum pyrolysis (FVP) or thermolysis (FVT), an environmentally friendly method for studying organic reaction mechanisms as well as synthesis, was applied to a series of oxalate dimers (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, and 15) to synthesise monomeric enes, dienes, and a triene (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16). All steroidal monomers were identified by spectroscopic means.
Keywords: Steroid, oxalate dimers, steroidal alkene, diene, triene, FVP.
