Digitoxigenin (3a) was converted to canarigenin (6), periplogenin (1c), and uzarigenin (3b); the use of tert-butyl hypochlorite for oxidation of digitoxigenin (3a) to chloro ketone 4 and application of chromium(II) acetate for reduction of epoxy ketone 7 to hydroxy ketone 8 represented particularly convenient aspects of these synthetic transformations.
