Addition of dibromocarbene to the dihydrooestrone derivative (I) gives different mixtures of stereoisomeric products (II) according to conditions. One series is readily converted directly into tropones by the action of silver salts, the other indirectly by initial reaction with pyridine. The bis-adduct (III) has been converted into A-homotestosterone (VIII).
