Photochemical Studies, 54. - Photodimerization of Testosterone Propionate in Solid State and Crystal Structure of Testosterone PropionateOn UV irradiation, testosterone propionate (1) dimerizes in solid state to give 6ζ-(3-oxo-17β-propionyloxy-5ζ-androstan-4ζ-yl)-17β-propionyloxyandrost-4-en-3-one (4). As shown by an X-ray analysis of 1, the structure of the topophotodimerization product 4 is determined by the molecular packing of 1 in the crystal.
