The total synthesis and an unambiguous structure confirmation of stevastelin B 1, a novel 15-membered cyclic depsipeptide, are described; the fatty acid moiety in 1, prepared stereoselectively from L-quebrachitol was converted into the amino carboxylic acid, whose macrolactamization by Shioiri's procedure effectively constructed the cyclic structure of 1.
