  • Leland L. Smith


Treatment of cholesterol autoxidation thus being complete, it is now suitable to examine related autoxidation of other steroids in order to see what else may be learned that could aid in further understanding of cholesterol autoxidation. Throughout the text to this point mention has been made of various odd autoxidations of other steroids, and the present chapter will examine the autoxidation of the two important sterols ergosterol (65) and 5α-lanost-8-en-3β-01 (68) for which considerable information is at hand and also the oxidation of other steroids under a variety of conditions related to simple air autoxidations.
