Cycloadsurgenin, 20R,24 S-epoxycycloartan-6α,25-diol-3,16-dione, was partially synthesized in four steps from cyclosieversigenin. Side products with the structures 17E,24S-cycloart-17-en-6α,24,25-triol-3,16-dione and 17Z,24 S-cycloart-17-en-6α,24,25-triol-3,16-dione were obtained in addition to the desired product.
