Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Squalamine dessulfate (24R) and the unnatural product squalamine dessulfate (24S) have been synthesized from stigmasterol. The key step in establishing the C24 stereochemistry is attachment of the sidechain at C22 using either (2R)- or (2S)-1,2-epoxy-3-methylbutane to yield the cholesteryl precursors of the epimeric squalamine dessulfates.
