The formylated spirobyclic alcohol 8a was computer modeled to be a mimetic of paclitaxel. In this model, the formyl group was used as a truncated paclitaxel side chain in order to reduce the computational work. Compound 8c, carrying the paclitaxel side chain, was synthesized in six steps from optically active 1,3-diketone 12. Microtubule stabilization was not observed for 8c, indicating that the model needs to be adjusted.
