A novel and highly efficient synthetic approach of alloursodeoxycholic acid, starting from hydeoxycholic acid in 9 steps with overall yield 25%, was reported. The key intermediate 4 was prepared in good yield by improved allylic oxidation of 3. The critical steps to stereoselectively inverse the configuration of 5 and α,β-unsaturated carbonyl reduction of 6 were realized under Mistunobu coditions and Luche reduction respectively. The structures of all synthetic compounds were confirmed by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, MS and IR spectra. The synthetic approach has the advantages of easy availability of starting materials, highly stereoselective, easily work-up and good overall yield, so it has considerable practical value.

Key words: alloursodeoxycholic acid, hydeoxycholic acid, Mistunobu configuration inversion, Luche reduction, synthesis
