The synthesis of emetine analogue NSC-134754, a potent inhibitor of the HIF pathway, has been accomplished and its structure reassigned. The stereochemistry of NSC-134754 has been assigned for the first time using X-ray crystallography and it has been demonstrated that only one diastereoisomer is active against HIF. © 2014 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
