The absolute stereochemistry of the steroidal saponins bethosides B and C was previously assigned as (22R,25R) on the basis of work that employed Horeau's method. Our studies of helosides A and B created doubt about both the original assignment and consequently our conclusion that relied upon it. The absolute configurations of bethosides B and C are revised to (22S,25R) following X-ray crystallographic analysis of their aglycone. Synthesis and full spectral characterization of both the 22R and 22S aglycones is reported to facilitate future stereochemical assignments in this series of saponins.
