The total synthesis of stevastelin B3, stevastelin C3 and 5-deoxy derivative of stevastelin C3, novel 13-membered cyclic depsipeptides, is described. This study unambiguously confirmed the proposed absolute structure of stevastelin B3, and revealed that the structure of stevastelin C3 is incorrect. The correct structure of stevastelin C3 was established by the total synthesis to be 5-deoxy derivative of the proposed structure.
