Glaziovianin A (1) is a novel isoflavone derivative isolated from the leaves of the Brazilian tree Astelia glazioviana. Glaziovianin A (1) showed cytotoxic activity and was suggested to be an inhibitor of tubulin polymerization. We achieved the total synthesis of glaziovianin A (1) by using the Suzuki-Miyaura coupling as a key step.
