Transition metal catalyzed reactions in steroid synthesis was investigated. Hydrogenation, various carbonylation and coupling reactions, 1-4 additions, and cyclizations were catalyzed by transition-metal complexes. Two diastereomeric binaphthol-type bis-steroidal ligands were used in a Ti-catalyzed Torgov cyclization to produce the C ring of a steroidal framework.
