5,5-Dimethyl-2,4-oxazolidinedione, 2,4-thiazolidinedione and 5,5-dimethylhydantoin were coupled with 2-(3,4-dihydro-1-naphthyl)ethyl alcohol by an application of Mitsunobu’s method to give the corresponding N-substituted products (5)-(7), respectively. Reduction of 5-7 with diisobutylaluminium hydride, followed by cyclization of the reduction products with formic acid yielded the 13-aza-16-oxa- (11), 13-aza-16-thia- (12) and 13,16-diaza-1,3,5 (10), 9(11)-estratetraen-17-one (13), respectively.
