A new approach to the synthesis of a series of isomeric 24-hydroxy-and 24,25-epoxysteroids starting from lithocholic acid was proposed. Sharpless asymmetric hydroxylation of intermediate Δ24-olefines was used as a reaction determining the stereochemistry of target compounds. The resulting derivatives are potential agonists of nuclear receptors LXRα and LXRβ and are potentially useful in the structure-function studies.
