The title steroid, C29H46O4, is a furostene derivative with a C=C double-bond length of 1.353 (3) and an E configuration. The side chain is oriented toward the α face of the A–E steroidal nucleus and presents a disordered terminal CH2—OH group [occupancies for resolved sites are 0.591 (9) and 0.409 (9)]. The methyl group at C20 attached to ring E is also oriented toward the α face, avoiding steric hindrance with the carbonyl O atom of the acetyl group. The furostene and acetyl functionalities form an α,β-unsaturated ketone system, with an s-cis configuration. All hydroxy and carbonyl groups are involved in weak intermolecular hydrogen bonds. The absolute configuration was assigned from the synthesis.
