The acylation of dihydrotestosterone with propionyl and p-chlorophenoxyisobutyryl chlorides leads to the formation of dihydrotestosterone esters and the 3-enol acylates of the dihydrotestosterone esters. The acid hydrolysis of the 3-enol acylates converts them into the corresponding dihydrotestosterone esters.
