Summary

  1. 1.

    The conditions for the oxidation of ergosterol acetate with chromic anhydride have been studied, and it has been shown that the yield of the 3β-acetoxy-5α-hydroxyergosta-7,22-dien-6-one (Burawoy's ketone) so obtained is a maximum when oxidation is performed in ether.

     
  2. 2.

    On the basis of the results obtained, a multistage mechanism for the oxidation of ergosterol acetate is suggested.
