The steroidal pyrazine 5 has been synthesized from 5α-cholestane-2,3-dione, and its cd has been compared with that of octahydronaphtopyrazine 7 with C2-symmetry. The n→x* - Cotton effects of the parent compound have the same signs and magnitudes as for the homochirally analogous steroid, whereas the k→x* - Cotton effects differ. On the other hand, pyrazines containing substituents nonsymmetrically attached to the chromophore show very similar Cotton effects. Assignment of transitions for the 2,3-dihydropyrazine chromophore could be made by comparison of the cd and uv spectra.
