The important cytochrome P450 inhibitor ancymidol is used as a plant growth retardant and has potential for various medicinal applications. However its high price sets economic limits to large-scale applications. Here a short and high-yielding synthesis is reported, providing ancymidol in substantial amounts in a cost- and time-efficient way.
