Singlet oxygen but not free radical oxidation readily converts cholesterol to cholesterol-5-hydroperoxide (29), which, under acidic conditions, undergoes Hock cleavage to form cholesterol secosterol aldehyde A (30), followed by rapid acid-catalyzed aldolization of the latter to form secosterol B (31) (Figure 5), so that secosterol A is only detected as a minor product under such conditions [115, 118].
Although Hock cleavage of (29) also yields (30), the acidic conditions for Hock cleavage facilitate very rapid aldolization of (30) to form secosterol B (31).
Ozone directly converts cholesterol 41 to the secosterol aldehyde 49 (secosterol A), which undergoes some conversion to its aldolization product 50 (secosterol B) [61].
