FNC-RED exhibits innate immune receptor Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4)/myeloid differentiation factor-2 (MD2) stimulatory activity. We have developed a divergent synthetic route to FNC-RED derivatives containing various alkyl side chains. Key features of the synthetic study include stepwise palladium catalyzed cross-coupling reactions and the construction of an all syn-cyclopentanetetrol moiety.
