Abstract

The 13C NMR spectra of erythrodiol and sapogenol C have been determined and assignments made for all 30 carbons in each compound. This has permitted a hydroxyl group of sapogenol C to be located at C-24. The biosynthetic significance of sapogenol C and erythrodiol production by oxidation of β-amyrin is discussed.
