SAR studies of the ten synthetic molecules demonstrated that the three-dimensional shape of the t-Bu attached side chain significantly affects the potent neurotoxicity of 1: the bulkiness of the C9-substituent and the specific dihedral angle of the C7-C8 bond strongly correlated to potent cytotoxicity, and truncation of the terminus induced activity loss.
