The epothilones and sarcodictyins have shown to be potent cytotoxic compounds with a TaxolTM-like mode of action. The clinical importance of TaxolTM has stimulated intense research into finding compounds with prospective superior chemotherapeutic properties to TaxolTM. We have developed enabling synthetic technologies for the construction of combinatorial libraries of these two potentially important chemotherapeutics, which led, in both cases to compounds with superior biological activity.
