Formatted abstract
Over one hundred years ago, the German Professor Julius Bredt derived the “Bredtsche Regel” (Bredt's rule), which, in short, states that the terminus of a double bond cannot lie at a bridgehead position. The Bredt rule premise initiated the reassignment of the structure of the natural product neoveratrenone, which strongly suggested a C-nor-D-homo steroid as the correct structural assignment.

The bicyclo[3.3.1]non-1-en-3-one motif, which has yet to be observed in natural products, was recently reported within the skeleton of neoveratrenone. On the basis of Bredt's rule, a plausible reassignment matching closely the C-nor-D-homo steroidal ring system has been proposed herein.
