Description

A comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the different types of synthesis of steroids, steroid-like compounds and their derivatives.
The book covers the synthesis of estrone along with several of its substituted derivatives, as well as the synthesis of neurosteroids, ent-steroids, heterocyclic steroids and other steroids. Organometallic derivatives of steroids are also included, as are the discovery and the isolation of steroids. It highlights the most important current and potential applications of steroids and steroid-derivatives in medicine and as anabolic steroids.
The result is an invaluable and well-structured reference for anyone entering or already working in the field.
