The X-ray crystal structure of 6 β-acetoxyprogesterone, C23H32O4, has been determined. This compound crystallizes in space group P212121 with a=13.195(3), b=15.035(4), c=10.705(3) Å, V=2139.8(9) Å3, Mr=372.5, Z=4, Dx=1.156g cm-3; Mo Kα radiation (λ=0.7107 Å), μ=0.72 cm-1, F(000)=808;R=0.069, and Rw=0.052 for 1292 reflections. Ring A adopts a normal 1 α,2 β-half-chair conformation. The side chain is typical for a 20-ketosteroid conformation.
