Conformation of bryostatin 10, a marine antineoplastic macrolide, in CDCl3 was analyzed by the spectroscopic and computational chemical methods. A combination of homonuclear two-dimensional NMR techniques at 600 MHz have enabled us to perform complete assignment of the 1H signals of bryostatin 10 in CDCl3. The conformation of its solution form was elucidated by a phase sensitive ROESY spectrum, temperature effect on OH proton and 3J vicinal coupling constants. Restrained molecular-dynamics simulation led to a well defined conformation of the compound in solution, which was found to be homologous to that of bryostatin 2 observed in the solid state.
