    Hi! I am studying the possible reactions that cholesterol can undergo, at the moment I know that it can oxidize and dehydrogenate, but I need to know the specific chemical equation of the reaction, if you know another types of reaction that may occur, it would be awesome

    It seems your other thread has been deleted so here's my reply again:


    Among others (this is just off the top of my head)

    It is an alcohol so it can undergo a condensation reaction with carboxylic acids to form an ester.


    It contains a C=C double bond so it can undergo electrophilic addition reactions. The double bond can also be attacked by ozone in an ozonolysis reaction.

    It can be attacked by radicals in a free radical substitution reaction.

    As for specific chemical equations look up the mechanisms and work it out, you have to do some work yourself

    Partly my fault and partly due to the new problem: the thread didn't show as having any replies so I deleted it without looking. Sorry for causing you more work.

    No problem, I had it copied to the clipboard in case the database error meant it didn't show, I just had to paste it

    I see, I think I will choose a bromination in the double bond for this case, thank you PhDemon!
