Abstract

Cholest $5-en-3\beta-oxy-5$ bromopentane (1) and cholest $5-en -3\beta-oxy-11$ bromoundecane (2), key precursors for the synthesis of novel cationic amphiphiles based on cholesterol, have been synthesized and characterized by $^1H-NMR$ spectroscopy and Xray crystallography. Thermal disorder and effect of length of the bromoalkyl segment on the crystal structure have been investigated. Possible molecular level explanation of the unusual alternating s-trans gauche conformation of the bromopentyl side chain of (1) has been presented.
