Synthesis of Diimines From Cholestanone
In this study, three new dimeric ketimine derivatives sterols were synthesized. First of all cholestanol was
converted to cholestanone by using IBX. After than cholestanone was reacted with different amines respectively 1,2-
ethylenediamine, 1,4-diaminobutane and 1,5-diaminonaphthalene in order to obtain ketimines. These compounds were
characterized by 1 H, 13 C NMR.
