Abstract: Fosmidomycin is the first representative of a new class of antimalarial drugs acting through inhibition of
1-deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate (DOXP) reductoisomerase (DXR), an essential enzyme in the nonmevalonate
pathway for the synthesis of isoprenoids. This work describes a divergent strategy for the
synthesis of a series of R-aryl-substituted fosmidomycin analogues, featuring a palladium-catalyzed Stille
coupling as the key step. An R-(4-cyanophenyl)fosmidomycin analogue emerged as the most potent analogue in the present series. Its antimalarial activity clearly surpasses that of the reference compound fosmidomycin.
