A series of new phenyl esters based on a 5,16-pregnadiene-20-one skeleton, namely 3β-benzoyloxy-5,16-pregnadiene-20-ones, which may be good inhibitors of 17α-hydroxylase and 5α-reductase enzyme or useful intermediates for producing steroidal drugs, were synthesized starting from diosgenin. The structures of the steroids were characterized by 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), 13C NMR, infrared (IR), and mass spectra.
