Résumé

La présence du 5α-androstène-16-3α-ol d'odeur musquée dans la fraction contenant les stéroïdes libres de la sueur des aisselles, recueillie chez des hommes sains adultes, a été établie par chromatographie en gaz avec spectrométrie de masse. La quantité d'androsténol trouvée n'exclut pas la possibilité d'une fonction phéromonale de ce stéroïde.
