In a change to your regular viewing, this week we are Naming That SARM, in a special round set by regular reader (and Name That Steroid quiz winner) Justin.
The compounds below have been experimentally produced and tested by pharmaceutical companies for their selective androgen receptor modulating properties. Your task is to identify them.
Correctly identify each steroidal substance from the structural diagrams for kudos.

Leave your answers in the comments section.
As always, your challenge is to correctly identify each steroid from the structural diagrams.
Leave your answers in the comments section. Trivial names are preferred, though nomenclatures or proprietary names will be accepted.
Steroid Biochemistry and Pharmacology. Academic Press; 1970, p127.
For bonus points identify which one is the odd one out; a steroid that as far as I know has no trivial name, has never been used clinically (or recreationally) and appears to have been included in error.
This round is very hard.
Work out what the unifying theme is, name the six steroids pictured (trivial names please) and, for maximum points, identify the odd one out and why. Post your answers in the comments section.
The theme for this round is “non-17a-methylated prohormones”. You know the rules of the game by now; just post the names of the steroids pictured in the comments.
As always, the quiz is just for fun. All the steroids in this round are now Schedule III controlled substances, but were once sold as prohormones/designer steroids.
If you know what they are, post your answers in the comments.
This quiz is just for fun. All the steroids in this round are naturally occurring. If you know what they are, post your answers in the comments.
