C-16-substituted steroids having an unsaturation in the side chain have been synthesized by sequential Arnold-Vilsmeier and Wittig reactions, subsequent photochemical studies showing the formation of either a dimeric structure or the occurrence of E/Z-isomerization; for one example, treatment with H2 over Pd-C led to full reduction of the side-chain and ring D.
