Scyphostatin analogs 2a-f possessing various saturated fatty acid side-chains (C12-C19) were efficiently synthesized in enantiomerically pure form starting from the known cyclohexene derivative 3. These analogs were designed to improve the stability of scyphostatin (1), a powerful and specific inhibitor of neutral sphingomyelinase (N-SMase) from a microorganism.
