The first stably fluorinated derivative of amphotericin B (2) with a fluorine atom in the macrolide skeleton was synthesized using an electrophilic fluorination reagent, Selectfluor®. The derivative 2 showed hemolytic, K+ permeable, and antifungal activities similar to those of AmB and thus was expected to be a powerful tool for NMR-based investigations on the mechanism of ion-channel formation by amphotericin B.
