1. Three crystalline compounds A, B and C have been isolated from human smegma. 2. Chemistry of compound A has been studied in detail. It has been shown to be an ester of β-cholestanol with a saturated fatty acid of the formula C20H40O2. Compound C has been identified with an authentic sample of β-cholestanol by mixed melting point and infra-red spectrum. Compound B occurs in very small amounts. Available evidence indicates it to be a hydroxy steroid. 3. Three new ester of β-cholestanol were prepared in connection with the work.
