Abstract Two new 9,11-secosterol, 9,11-seco-3 beta,6 alpha,11-trihydroxy-5 alpha-cholest-7-en-9-one (2) and 9,11-seco-3 beta,6 alpha,11-trihydroxy-24- methylene-5 alpha-cholest-7-en-9-one (3), have been isolated from the marine sponge Spongia officinalis and their structures elucidated by analysis of spectral data including 1H nuclear magnetic resonance correlation spectroscopy (COSY) experiments. Partial synthesis of 2 starting from 3 beta,6 alpha-dihydroxy-9-oxo-9,11-seco-5 alpha-cholest-7-en-11- al (1) confirmed the structure assignment.
