Download citation | semisynthesis of tax | the semisynthesis of taxol was critical to its development as a drug this review focuses on methods that have been developed to convert the readily available 10-deacetylbaccatin iii (10-dab) into taxol, highlighting the various protection schemes us. Because of yield considerations, taxol and taxotere are currently derived via semisynthesis from the advanced taxoid 10-deacetylbaccatin iii, which must be isolated from yew (taxus) trees thus, efforts are underway to produce taxol (and other advanced taxoids for use in semisynthesis) by alternate, biotechnological means.
