Özet

The synthesis, photochemistry, and photophysics of 17alpha-bromo-3alpha-(triphenylsilyloxy)-5alpha-androstan-6-one (1) and 17beta-bromo-3beta-(triphenylsilyloxy)-5alpha-androstan-6-one (2) have been studied in aqueous tetrahydrofuran. The 17alpha-bromo isomer gives evidence (reduced phi(f), tau(1), and phi(isc) for the ketone) for interaction between the ketone and C-Br moieties in the excited singlet state. Some photodehalogenation is also observed upon excitation of the ketone chromophore. This interaction seems to be absent or minimal for the 17beta-bromo isomer.
