I am trying to work on little project of my own. Now I would like to know how can any one change the molecule of Testosterone into a steroid molecule. What equipment would I need? and what are the procedures for that. I am just starting my chemistry major. thanks

If you want to turn testosterone into a steroid you dont have to do anything. Testosterone is a steroid. Now, if you mean how do I attach an ester to a molecule of testosteone, you would need a decent knowledge of the lab, access to some hard to get anhydrides, and a chromatograph. I am not going to explain how to do it because you can seriously fuck yourself up if it does not come out perfect the first time, and it never does. Also, Why bother making something that is allready available in USP grade from many international suppliers at low prices? Is it really worth it? I dont think so.

get a hold of a Merck Index, it lists patents and published synthesis methods for many steroids. You can then search University libraries for the literature and purchase copies of old patents, but beware of big brother. PS, simplest I've seen is treating DHEA into Methandriol dipropionate with reaction with methyl magnesium iodide. Testosterone can also be manufactured from DHEA by simple fermentation, ie yeast / sugar reaction.

No experiments should be done with the intent to creat a compound that will be repeadetly administered to the body if it is not prepared in a real laboratory and tested by HPLC or NMR. Experiments like this can often result in high levels of endotoxins which can not be removed by filtration or sterilization, be it heat or chemical sterilization. They could also still contain some of the solvents or catylists that where required for the experiment. These should not be done unless you know your way around the lab and you have access to the equipment above so that you can assure a clean, safe product.

bro if your starting your chemistry major, you really shouldn't try this. It is really hard to get a good yeild and not have impurties.

well can we go ahead and talk about this. assuming i do have access to a lab and do know my way around. i think this would make some neat grad projects. I realize its dangours and what not but im not really interested in inj it just yet i just want to see if i can do it.

We can talk about it via PM or Email, but i would rather not openly post the procedures used. I do agree, it would make for a nice experiment, but the end product should not be used.
