An N-aryl-3-oxo-4-aza-5α-androst-1-ene-17β-carboxamide and three N-aryl or alkyl substituted 17 α-hydroxy-3-oxo-4-aza-5α-androstane-17β-carboxamides were synthesized as antiandrogen candidates from 3-oxoandrost-4-ene-17β-carboxylic acid and androst-4-ene-3,17-dione respectively. The chemo- and stereoselective reduction of 3-oxo-4-aza-5-ene intermediates with formic acid and their tautomerism in a solution of chloroform and methanol were described.
