This information was collected by Armando G. Amador, M.D., the president of the Illinois State Academy of Science. It has since been removed from that website. I intend to find references for the abbreviations listed here. --Slashme 09:07, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
References, non-standard abbreviations, etc.
I have gone through the list with Google Scholar and PubMed, and found references for the most common abbreviations for most of the steroids listed here. I can't find refs for andronosterone(*) and a few others, so I have left them as is for now. Please hack away.
You will notice that I put all the refs at the top, so that the table would still be readable. I put them between noinclude tags, so that they wouldn't show up in the text, but it's still not a completely ideal setup, because it leads to an extra back-reference for each ref. Improve it if you can think of a good solution. --Slashme 10:40, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
(*) This appears to have been a misprint for adrenosterone, judging from the systematic name. --Slashme 12:09, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
- We stil need sources for the systematic names (I guess PubChem will be a good place to start).
- I haven't yet investigated the redlinked names.
- We could probably trim the list of references quite significantly by looking for unnecessary duplication (e.g. if one article refers to P4, P5 and 17P5, and we have a separate reference for 17P5, we could cover them all with one reference). If you have more time than sense, this could be the job for you!

- Along the lines of the "red link" names, I'm wondering how easily / whether or not the "systemic name" column can be compared to the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry nomenclature aka IUPACa names. (which tend to be in a table for any of the Category:Sex_steroids articles) Hope this helps. --Kuzetsa (talk) 17:29, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
Expert needed (justification)
There are 2 different molecules on this list for DHT and neither link to the Dihydrotestosterone article...
- Fixed: 5α-DHT is the form normally referred to as DHT. --Slashme (talk) 14:04, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
also note, many articles in Category:Sex_steroids use the term "systemic" in the infobox table for the IUPAC name.
- Actually, that was a typo: it should read "systematic". --Slashme (talk) 14:04, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
Also see:Talk:Dihydrotestosterone#citations_.2F_sources_for_IUPAC_names_on_this_and_many_.22sex_steroid.22_articles ... the IUPAC & systemic names have been unsourced / unable to be verified going back as far as 2007 --Kuzetsa (talk) 17:52, 12 October 2008 (UTC)
- Unsourced, yes. Unable to be verified? Not really. I just haven't put any effort into what I didn't think would be a very productive enterprise. If we must get sources, I guess we can. --Slashme (talk) 14:04, 13 October 2008 (UTC)
