The reactions of 5,6α-epoxy-3β-hydroxy-5α-cholestane, 5,6β-epoxy-3β-hydroxy-5β-cholestane, and 5,6α-epoxy-3β-methoxy-5α-cholestane with boron trifluoride etherate in benzene give largely products of rearrangement via C(5)-O cleavage. These results contrast with the known reactions of the corresponding 3β-acetoxy-epoxides which give high yields of fluorohydrins.
